We cant be friends

cant be friends

By esther hopePublished 3 months ago 1 min read

I don't know how to act around you,

My heart races and my mind goes askew,

Every time you make a joke with me,

I can't help but think of what could be.

You give me that smile that lights up my day,

But it also reminds me of the kiss we shared in May,

We can't be friends, it's just too much to bear,

I can't pretend that I don't care.

It hurts to see you with someone else,

I try to move on, but I can't help myself,

I wish I could just forget,

But memories of us linger and I can't reset.

So I'll try to keep my distance,

And hope that with time, the pain subsides,

Maybe one day we can rebuild,

But for now, my heart needs to be stilled.
