Fallen For You

© Josh Alker

Published on January 2012

I hear your problems,
I will wipe away a tear.
I love you with all my heart,
And that is my biggest fear.

I can't get you out of my head,
You're always around.
Everywhere I look,
In the sky and on the ground.

You are there when I am about to sleep,
And all throughout the night.
You are there when I wake,
You never leave my sight.

You are always on my mind,
And you have captured my heart.
I am in love with you,
And don't ever want to be apart.

However, I am playing a game,
That I cannot possibly win.
As you are my best friend,
And feeling for you is like a sin.

It's a game of love roulette,
And the gun is fully loaded.
As loving a best friend is friendship suicide,
So I'll make sure it's noted.

I do this every time,
It is nothing new.
I have ruined things once again,
All because I have fallen for you.

I have been in this situation for years now and still I'm conflicted with my feelings for my best friend. We kind of have a love-hate best friend thing. She gets moody, I do too. We fight, we make up over pizza. We have the same hobbies, likes, dislikes. People think we're a couple but we just brush them off. I have a feeling that she loves me more than just a best friend just as what I feel about her.
She always holds my hand or clamps her arms on my arms like it's the most usual thing on earth. I don't know what else to think. I love her.

I have been in this situation too. They said falling in love with your best friend will ruin your friendship. I really like him a lot and our parents were pretty close too.
We were always getting paired up and inside I really like it. I never told him what I feel.
Then I need to move away because of some family problems so I never had the chance. However, some of my classmates knew I had a crush on him so after I moved away, they told him.
After that, my old classmates told me that he had liked me too. I was happy yet also depressed at the same time. I don't have his number and he rarely uses his Facebook account.
A year after that, they told me that he had another crush and it really crushed me. Its been 3 years since we've talked to each other. I really miss him and I still love him.

I had strong feelings for my best friend for 7 years and always hid it and once in awhile when we would get hurt by the opposite sex we would joke and say screw it lets get married. But I didn't dare tell him that I truly loved him but I finally got the courage to and I wouldn't change it for the world. We are getting married next summer :)

I have this exact situation with my best friend. He means everything to me but I can't tell him. It really scares me because I always thought I am incapable of loving anybody. My love for him was like a smack in the face. I was like of course it would be somebody I can't be with. So now I am stuck watching him go out with other girls and I am on the verge of losing my mind. What do I do about my mess???

I have been in a situation that was pretty close to what this poem is saying. It hurt both me and my friend, and I am at a loss of words to say to her now. I have ruined things between us, and I'm not sure it it'll grow back. So what should I do?
