Just Friends Poem

I wrote this on a cold summer noon... when finally I told her everything that she should know... though I know I could never have her.. at least she knew that my forbidden love for her exist.

As the cold wind of summer touches my face
Thoughts of you linger on my head
When the times I kept myself inside a cage
I held myself back, and it's you I almost had

I almost have you every time I'm feeling down
You're almost here when I need you around
I hear your voice every time I hear a sound
Now an almost broken ME is what I found

From the day you tap my shoulders
Every star glows brighter
And in those glows I want to stay forever
Even if that means that I'll always be a dreamer

It happened so fast
I hope these good things last
You easily accept me as your friend
I wish you'll stay that way 'til the end

Again, I'm not asking for more
All I want is to keep you 'til forevermore
'Coz you're the only one that I adore
With you my soul seems to soar

You're like a star on a midnight sky
And like a wind that I cannot tie
Like a water that I cannot hold
In short, you're like a dream that I cannot mold

I know I have you
But like the earth, I cannot own you
Coz God made you similar to what I have to
So in my dreams is where I could only keep you

Though I can't always have what I wanted
With what you are giving, I am content
Just constantly remember
That I'll always be by your side forever

From the moment that I loved you
I know chances are fewer than few
Consequences I must know
And my feelings must not show

But this secret is just so hard to hide
My heart is shouting from the inside
Once and for all, somehow I gotta to let you know
That my insane heart just can't let you go

Accept me or reject me
At least, at the very least I've made you see
Somebody's here who's better than he could be
Yet not given a chance to breathe free

Years from now whenever I will pause
While walking along the coast
I'll laugh and remember when I got hurt the most
By somebody that I had...almost!!!
