Just A Friend - Poem by Midnight Starlight

I've always cherished the moments
When I'd see you in the hall
When I had no other 'opponents'
When it was out to me you'd call.

I always had it in my mind
That we both knew we were close friends
I loved the way you were always so kind
and the way for each other we'd bend.

I know every color of your eyes
and all your favorite songs
Slowly into my heart you quietly pry
Everytime one of them comes on.

Everytime I go out
Something reminds me of you
Maybe your funny face while you pout
I remember the little things you do.

But it just really occured to me
As I sit here alone tonight
That I never opened my eyes to see
Everyone else all along was right.

My girls always tell me they see it
In the way my face gets bright
In the way I'd always have a fit
If we'd ever get into a fight.

In the way I seemed so glad
Whenever I talked about you
and in the way I'd get so sad
When you didn't do what you said you'd do.

And as I sit here with my heart on a shelf
I wonder why I just did it again
I need to stop pretending with myself
And stop lying that you're just a friend.

(hey yall! please tell me what you think.)
