The Price Of Losing You - Poem by Shilesha Johnson

He tells me the things that places smiles upon my face
And sometimes little effort is all it really takes
He tells me things that I hate to even fall for
Cause there’s some one else that I adore
And when he tells me how he feels
He makes it really hard on me
And although it makes me smile
Still inside I’m not really happy
Because this isn't suppose to be happenin
When he tells me jokes
I’m not suppose to be laughin
When he says he loves my eyes
It shouldn't make me feel good
I don't think that it should
And I never thought that it would
I love YOU more
And I’m scared of letting go
Because if you're gone
I’m not sure where to go
Your heart feels like my home
And if I don't have it then I’m lost
And loosing you completely would be a big cost
A big price to pay
I don't like the idea of not being able to know that you're okay
I don't like the idea of not being your girl someday
I don't like the idea of you being another girl’s man
I don't like the idea of you not being mine
I don't want to risk the chance
Of never having you in my life again
I don't like the idea of JUST being your friend
But how am I suppose to mend
When I have feelings for you AND him
My love for YOU is stronger
I think the only other difference is that
I knew him longer
