Friends With Benefits - Poem by YURI DURAAN

How foolish she was...
how arrogant to think
that she could play one
over on Love...

that she could abuse
this great emotion which
lies between people
and binds them in
inexplicable ways...

hiding it under the guise
of 'benefits'
masking it as
'immediate satisfaction'...

Oh! How foolish she
was, thinking that she
would not fall in love.

    It does happen, but is it any riskier than trying love...I sometimes think(cynically) that all love will end, but friendship goes on forever...Coach (Report) Reply

    I thought it would end in marriage, but no, just a broken heart.
    A beautiful, emotional poem I especially can relate to, but you place your words so well I am sure anyone can understand.
    A 10 from me.
