I'De Rather Have Your Friendship - Poem by Evita Saldana

What do i do in times like this?
He's my best friend!
I knew he had feelings for me,
he had told me in my face.
But i never thought he'd go this far.
It's not like he's forcing me though,
he simply just asked.
We went out once before
not for very long.
It's not that it's awkward now
that he's asked
but more like confusion about my feelings.
I thought I liked this other guy
maybe I do
but maybe it's just the love
I have for my best friend!
The love that's making me
go crazy about that question he's asked.
And it's definitely not that i'm scared
that if I say no
He's going to turn his back on me too.
I know that he'll understand
whether me decision is a
yes or no.
I know that he'll always be right beside
me guiding me through.
So why is it that i cant say no?
I cant seem to figure out
whats keeping me from saying the
words that we both know won't
ruin our friendship.
Lastly, i'ts not that i dont like him!
I love him,
But his friendship means more
to me than
so tell me what do i do in times like this?
