In Between

Between love and friendship
I'm waving like a lost ship

Between black and white
Grey takes away my sight

Between doubt and certitude
How can I have such an attitude?

I no more bear the confusion
Tell me is it truth or illusion?

I was dreaming when there came
A strange feeling I can not name

Since long you've been my only mate
My soul only you can penetrate

Inside me only you can see
Like sugar in a cup of tea
Like the door knows the key
Like the flower waits the bee

Today it is clearly seen
In between I should never have been

To a strong feeling you were blind
Something your eyes no longer hide

To your best friend love you can fake
Not knowing his heart you can break

It is going on 13 years since my husband passed away. I got married at 17 and he died when I was twenty. I think about him all the time because all the men in my life so far after him have been abusive mean men. I wouldn't even say that I can't find my prince charming. I think he was and you only have one chance at life and that was my chance. People tell me that you do get a second chance but any guy that I've talked to so far just wants one thing. Everybody knows that I miss my husband. He would bring me flowers, he would take me out to dinner, I just miss the little things. I miss getting flowers. I was just pregnant a couple years ago and the baby's father wouldn't even rub my stomach or take care of me or the baby. I had to give her up for adoption. I'm stressed out and I want my husband back, he was my angel. God should not have taken him so young.

This is exactly what's going on with me. I have a very close friend. In fact he was my teacher at university but now we're colleagues. I keep trying to find an excuse just to see him or talk to him. When he smiles my heart beats goes so fast. I see him as an angel. Want to spend every second with him. But unfortunately, all we can be is friends. I'm just an ex-student, a colleague and a close friend. I'm trying to convince myself that I love him only as friend and a brother. But all my trials are in vain. Because I really LOVE him more than a friend!
