Friendship or Love

When I talk to you it is friendship
But when I hug you it is love
Friendship is when we have fun
Love is when we flirt
So which do I choose the strong friendship
the fun love?

    I've read a few of your poems, yet this it the one I choose to leave my thoughts on. I feel as if your work is simply scratching the surface of idea's you don't fully develop into a resolution. I implore you as a writer myself, to pursue your poems until they have a firm motive to exist! It is not enough to merely express an emotion, the poet must justify itself! (Report) Reply

    you amuse me my dear.....I like the style and the concept utter,
    so sweet, harsh to believe, to near yet! so far and so flirting yet! its
    fancy....God bless your poem....A beautiful one...a 10+ (Report) Reply

    A little short, which is cool. Most poems I've read are a bit long.
    Definitely talking about a guy. Not so much a crush but a guy friend you've been friends with for awhile and are starting to develop feelings for.
    As for the question at the end, why not both? You need both love and fun in a relationship. I hope that helps
    If you'd be so kind would you look at my poems. 'I wish' and the 'special someone' poems. I'd be really grateful to have your input (Report) Reply

    I found this to be the best of the several poems I read on your page tonight - it has a purpose and control that captures attention.

    A very good poem. Short, sweet, and to the point. I think the best love developes from a great friendship. And you cant really have one without the other. Enjoyed the read. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    Choose what's your heart beat. Love without a fire is not good, friendship without love is the same..... Take them booth and you will be happy.

    thanks and I can give you my love if you wish,
