A Binding Of Days - Poem by Frankie Renae

I wish I could just tell you
Everything I feel about you
But living in a box, put to the test
There are thoughts I just can't express
Last semester, I barely knew we were friends
Then came the Christmas break that never ends
Hanging out was great, then you tried to hold my hand
Getting to know you, another grain of sand
Getting accustomed to talking for hours on end
Then watching you slip into your fast again

This is our story in my eyes
All of our glory, uncompromised
A binding of days, being retold
That which fades, but still is bold
This is us, me and you
This is us, whatever we are
The things that could make a friendship strong
Or put in divides too far, so wrong
Let me take you back to live these details
Give you a reason not to give in and let us fail

Of all things fucked in ration
The silence sucked, discommunication
Then fin'ly wrestling season ended
The date and confession expected
I's with the boy I always said I wouldn't
You slipped in so coy and I just couldn't
Get you off my mind, all things ticked in perfect time
That's what firsts are made of, your kisses were mine,
And I escaped from reality in your hands
From it's troubles and maturity's demands


You were so complicated
And by the second date I was jaded
I tried to tell myself this was no good
Ups and downs, but it's where we stood
So I made my way through all those talkless times
Cauz there was so much I could tell your mind
And ever since we compromised to be just friends
Whatever we had has fallen to an end
I'm sad, and I'm happy, and I miss you so much
I hold onto our relationship as such


Just when things were being cool
I had to ask you to prom like a fool
And you hugged me and tried to hold my hand
Said just kidding, but what's our stand?
You lie and don't talk and you break your word
I don't know what's a joke and what's truth, heard?
So here I sit waiting to make up my mind
This here's the one song on us friends I could find
It's not made up so answer the questions I have
Are you gonna give up or give to me your laugh?
