Treasure Island

The Friend-Zone

It's kind of a lonely place
And people here have no grace
Everyone here is on their own
We call this place the friend-zone

People come here in a huge bunch
Like the ones coming for a free lunch
This place is a bottomless well
Some claim it's worse than hell

The people here are frustrated
Seeing a happy couple makes them devastated
Don't you hate it when its this close
When you could reach it out in a pause

Of all the things women had got
I think this is the worst
They treat us so casual
Like we're just the usual

I was different the day i said
I will love you till I'm dead
But then u said something
I would never wanna hear
We would be friends for ever

Once u reach this endless pit
Swear to god there's no exit
The more you struggle here
Deeper you go into despair

All those guys out there
And in the friend-zone, God knows where
If u ever fall down the pit
Just accept defeat and just wait

A girl will come one day
Will help you get out some way
She is who we call the one
She will love you like none

Just hold on to her
Everything will be fine
And you will be on cloud nine
But mark my words my friend
Even good things have an end
If u let her go on her own
You'll end up again in the friend-zone

This time you may not find a way
To escape this atrocious array

If u can't find that girl
The world around u will swirl
U will reach a place
Where u can't take no more
It's here you realize
It would never be like before
It's then u try to break this joint
U just reached the 'limiting point'

The only thoughts your mind may tend
'I don't want to be just a friend
I just want this thing to end'

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
