This poem is for those who have fallen in love with their friend and are left with questions about what to do.

This poem originally was published in Love Poems - Love and Friendship Poems

I Love You, My Friend
Shall I run or hide
And die inside
Or pretend
That I never knew you, even as a friend?

Can I go back in time,
Before your hand was in mine,
Or erase the kiss,
That I will forever miss,
Or forget your eyes
That seem to hypnotize?

Can my mind erase
The feel of your embrace?
How can I forget all of this
And pretend it doesn't exist?

I want you to know one thing that will never end -
my love for you. I love you, my friend

    THIS POEM IS ON OF A KIND ,IT SAYS JUST WHAT I WANTED TO SAY TO MY EXBROYFRIEND . When i sent this poem to him, his reply was man that is so true. He is living in the Islands and when ever we talk this poem is what we always end our conversation with . We are so married to other people ,but we are still madly in love with each other.

    Wow ! these words are so touching and yet so real and thus too far for us at this very momemt. but because of these words, it will makes want us more then to embrace on a journey of time and faith. I await your touch day and nite, the fingers are not enough anymore, yes the hours we spend on it , has brought us together-now we wait for that finale moment of our eyes to melt. Thank you and you know who you are. love to you

    Why do some friends, walk away from you when you finally disclose your feelings that you have been bottled for so long? Do they deserve our braveness and love? Did they ever realized how much it cost us?
