My Friend's Girl - Poem by Dave Alexander

Should I tell you what I know, what he does, what he’s done,
The girls he cheats with, he says don’t worry it’s just fun.
He’s always been this way, it’s never bothered me before,
Now it’s wrong, why does he need more?

I think it’s me, I’ve done the unthinkable, the worst,
I’ve fallen for you and he saw you first.
As much as I want to be with you, for you to see me,
I can’t betray a friend, then who would I be?

So now I’m stuck, torn apart inside, what should I do?
If I tell you the truth, you’ll hate me too.
Except I hate to see you betrayed like this,
I long to experience your loving soft kiss.

I’m conflicted and emotions run through me like fire,
And of this struggle I’m beginning to tire.
I look for answers wherever I can, I seek help from friends,
They tell me that in the end, all love ends.

I’ll keep my peace for now, and get him to change his ways,
To treat you right, for all of your days.
Because you should be happy, even if it’s not with me,
I’m so confused, should I just let things be?
