I was wrong to think the worst had past
This seems to be a pain that will last
Emotions run deeper than the blood within my veins
Keeping me alive yet still bringing me pain

It's not in me to stop loving you
My heart and mind wont seem to allow me to
You've obviously changed my life in a way
Because you stay in my thoughts, tucked safely away

Why is it so hard to be angry with you?
Your smile can change my whole world if you wanted to
It's hard because I know what you're worth in my mind
However I doubt you have feelings of the same kind

You mean more to me than anything I know
It's just hard to allow my true feelings to show
I would like us somehow to be more than just friends
But I can see in your eye that's where we end

If a friend is what you want, a friend I will be
But I know somewhere inside there's room for "we"...

------- Author's Notes -------

This is just a poem about mixed feelings for a friend. Sometimes I think we would be great as more than that, but I'm uncertain about her feelings towards me.
Unlike should always tell someone how you feel. :)

great ending

There's always fear, when taking the 1st step.... But, if she reads this poem, I hope she reconsiders her feelings....

Lovely poem, intitled, "Confused"....

Don't you hate the feeling of wanting to tell someone of your feeling but have the fear of rejection sulking in the back of your mind :| enough of my babbling, nicely written and good luck with it. ~Demon~
