Teen Crush Poem

Poem About Having A Crush On A Friend

This is the story of one of my best friends. When we started out, we were just so innocent! But as time moved on I realized that I liked him. I was a stupid, stupid child, and I let that get in the way of our friendship. But now, he and I joke and chat during our classes, and I can say with pride, I am one of the few people he seeks out to talk to. We are no more than friends, but the connection that I feel to him will never go away, he was not just my first crush, he was my first love.

I loved this poem so much! It made me think of my very 1st best friend from the start of my Kindergarten year. Her name was Chayanna and I met her on the first day of school. We met because...

I Am With You


Published by Family Friend Poems March 2011 with permission of the Author.

I remember when we met,
In kindergarten, we were set.
Friends from then on, without a doubt.
Said we would never live without,
But time moves on and then we too,
Got caught up in the 'cootie' schmooze.

We wrinkled our noses and turned away,
We thought we could go at least a day,
But no, instead we played a fake war.
Closer than ever, we fake argued galore,
But time goes on and then we too
Threw aside that stage and I was with you.

Again we sided, it was us two as one.
Who cares what others thought, we had fun.
Many years had passed, and I developed a love,
Each time I saw you, angels sang from above.
Being a foolish child, I drifted away,
Until the unthinkable happened one day.

I never thought, even as I avoided you,
That one day we would be fully through.
You stopped searching me out, as I had done,
You would walk past me, having much more fun.
But time goes on, and on, and on.

And even now, so many years far after,
Even you remember our dear laughter.
You came up to me, just around high-school.
You didn't act different, you didn't even act cool.
You treated me just like you used to.
Time may have passed on, but I am with you.

I loved this poem so much! It made me think of my very 1st best friend from the start of my Kindergarten year. Her name was Chayanna and I met her on the first day of school. We met because this girl named Kathy noticed that we were wearing the same pants. Since then we became besties. You couldn't separate us. We did everything together. But she started going through a lot of stuff and the only way she could deal with it was by being aggressive. She came to school and if she got mad she would hit you or kick you. It started in 7th grade and I was immature and didn't even think about talking it out with her. I just decided to stop talking to her. She figured I didn't like her anymore so we stopped talking. It was really sad. I am now a Freshmen in High School and she has transferred to a different school. Before she moved we were on good terms with each other but just talking to her was awkward. I miss her a lot:(

This poem is cool! Reminds me of my 1st love who was my best friend ever! But unlike here, I was just too stupid to confess my love to him and I lost him forever. Even the friendship is non existent! I just miss how he used to call me up everyday after class or at home to chat! I miss the way he used to shout Ana, whenever he saw me from a far off distance! I just miss him and it hurts a lot now to be ignored by him! :(
