I wrote this poem when I fell for a good friend of mine who I have loved for a long time. Unfortunately he did not have the same feelings I had towards him.

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

In A Nutshell
I think of you often
Do you think of me?
So sweet, so kind,
Do I even cross your mind?

I know your face in my mind,
I know your voice in my ears,
I think I know you,
Even through these years.

Are you my friend?
Are you my love?
That couldn't be,
You don't even see me.

I cry myself to sleep,
Every night my mind wanders,
If you're not the first thing,
You're the second thing on mind.

My eyes see you,
My heart aches,
For a love I assume,
Will someday bloom.

Who said friends could be lovers?
What were they thinking?
My love life, sinking or swimming?
It's sinking.

I am scared
I am afraid
My life right now
Is one big show.

Episode after episode,
Re- run after re- run
Why do I love you?
Let me show you.

When you are around me
So is the thought of her
I wish deeply
You weren't with she.

I have respect for a couple
What they share is beautiful
But what about the little people?
Whom you don't even see?

When you are my friend
I am yours
Your company completes me
Whenever you take the time.

To tell you the words
The three "easy" ones
I have to say,
And hard in a way.

Will you be calm?
Will you hate me after?
Will you be my friend?
Or will everything end?

With love, there's lust,
I lust for you,
I love you.
As for your thoughts on me?

    I loved it. It felt so relevant to everything that I'm feeling at the moment. And I know that the guy will never truly know how I'm feeling which makes me so upset inside. Thanks Sara, it was awesome.

    I loved this poem it is exactly how I feel about my crush. I have liked him for so long and he acts like he likes me but when I reveal to him my feelings but he just wants to be friends.
  • Lauren
    This poem sumed up everything. absolutely everything I am wondering/feeling about my best friend. I've, for a long time now, been wondering if I should try to persue my feelings with him. You say in the beginning of the poem, the person you are writing about didnt feel the same way. How did things turn out!? I loved this poem and I would love to read about the outcomes and emotions of your decision.
  • jennifer
