Mistaken Intentions - Poem by Nyrical Poet

I messed with her emotions, because I do not know what to do
All I wanted to say is that I only wanted to be with you
The words that came out did not convey what I meant to say
They did not tell you that I wanted to see you everyday

I want you to know that you never took advantage of me
My hopes and dreams were for you to finally break free
I had a choice, which is one that I can fully comprehend
But now, I just want our friendship to not be broken, for it to mend

Unintentionally I played with her emotions, only making her more sad
Trying to tell her that she has been the best friend that I've never had
Only to want to spend more time as two hearts beating as one
Attempting to be strong, to help her fight the battle that darkness has won

I now realize that she has to do this thing all on her own
I should have realized this, and be supportive of all her decisions
She confided in me with all of the thoughts that ran through her mind
But I selfishly threw this away by trying to force her to be mine

Now I sit here, all alone listening to my own lonely thoughts
Reality has struck me that she was already mine, making me more distraught
Letting myself falter, and risk going into this great unknown
Wishing I can hold her in my arms, and place her own a throne

Cherish my thoughts and please sweetheart hold onto all my warmth
My love for you is forever, I am sorry for creating such cold thoughts
We are and will always be such a huge inspiration to each others lives
We will meet again kido, as without your bond I cannot breathe or survive
