What ever happened to us when did we end?
How long ago did I consider you a friend?

The pain in my heart has turned into fear.
I can't imagine life without you near.

I have known all along I love you too much.
I smother you and long for your touch.

I try to hide how much you mean to me.
Like a caged bird you want to be free.

I should have had other friends and interests too!
My friends I left so I wouldn't be away from you.

I guess I just need that one best friend to confide.
That friend that no matter what would be by my side.

I should have known that you wouldn't be.
You would never be that friend to me.

I shouldn't have allowed it to go on this long.
When I look in your eyes I see I was wrong.

I tried to force you to think like I do.
I wasn't a very good friend to you!

I loved the poem, great job.
though it did hurt to read it.
you have my sympathies though, for I was only engaged when I left the one I loved...
you were married...
you must have had so much more pain than I...
it kind of makes me feel selfish.
