Just Friends Poem

I was in love with my best friend. I thought we had a chance at first, but he then told me, in words no less painful, "I don't want to be with you." It hurt. A lot. And for a long time afterward, I was angry with him. But we're moving forward now, letting go and moving on, and this poem is to remind me that I'm partially responsible for what happened, too.

I'm Sorry

© M-Dog
Iím sorry for the things Iíve done
Iím sorry for what was said
Iím sorry for these words I write
While lying here in bed.

The thing I need to tell you is
You mean so much to me
But it hurts so much to realize
There are things that you donít see.

I wanted you to love me too
I wanted you to care
I wanted to belong with you
I wanted to be a pair.

But you made it fairly clear
That you donít want the same
And this, I know, is all my fault
Thereís no one else to blame.

So here I am apologizing
Saying ďsorryĒ with all my grace
And Iím sorry to say that Iím too scared
To say this to your face.

  • I too love my best friend and I thought there is some chance of our being a pair. When I told him about my feelings, he clearly told me to forget him and I was never anything more than a best friend to him. It hurts but we are still very good friends, we are not best friends anymore and only I am responsible for that........
