Fallen For You

default ©

Published: 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 known him for a few months, almost close to a year. We get along pretty well; it's amazing. We talk about everything and anything. A day does not pass without us communicating. We have become part of each other's lives. He told me before that he's not ready for a relationship. H doesn't know that I really like him. Every time I get the courage to tell him how I really feel, I get scared. I don't want to lose our friendship. I don't know what to do.

I have this friend and we've been friends for a while. We are friends with benefits. I told him I liked him over texts, but he says, "You know this is just a friends with benefits type of deal." I wonder does he really know I like him? To be honest, I think I'm falling in love with him, and Tuesday is my mom's birthday. She died going on 9 months ago, but he doesn't know it because I didn't tell him, but to be honest I want to tell him. I like him. I love him that I need him, but I don't want to lose him. I know I should tell him and that I shouldn't keep it in and keep hurting like this. To keep him by my side I'll do anything, anything at all, anything he tells me to.

I have a guy best friend. We became friends because he is my seatmate so we chat and chat. I told him about my crush and then he kept on saying that I should forget him. So a few months we got closer and we became inseparable and whenever I am talking to some other guy he would drag me away or tell me that he wanted to tell me something. As we became closer, little did I know that I was starting to fall in love with him. I kept on denying that I like him. So right now, I am starting to ignore him and go to some other places whenever the classes are starting. I wonder if he's noticed it. Because the day I realized that I am falling for him is the day when he couldn't get out in my mind.

I met my best friend in school. At that time, we just trying to know each other, not knowing she was already falling for me. I did not notice it. Then we became very close and inseparable but not dating. She went into a relationship with another guy, because she thought I might not have the same feelings she had for me, but few months later I discovered that I couldn't do without her. I sleep with her in my thoughts and wake up still thinking about her. I have told her several times that am in love with her, but it's too late because she is already madly in love with her boyfriend, and now she can't see me as more than a friend. What should I do, because am deeply in love with my friend?

I've know this man for a very long time (around 30 years). We became inseparable for about a year and a half back in 2003. A year and a half went by and I lost my best friend to the woman he married. I also went and got married. Twelve years went with only seeing him 2 times. We are both divorced now. He has come back in to my life, and I'm really happy. He's told me he loves me, and he has said he values our friendship.

The other day I took him his late Christmas gifts and he loved them and said he would treasure them forever. Then he kissed me on the lips?!!?! (I’ve never kissed him before.) Then a little bit later we were leaving. I said I'm chilly and he grabbed me and held and rubbed my back until I was warm. Then it happened again, but this time was very different. He said, “I just want to hold you,” but there's a lot going on in our lives and I know how I feel and I can tell how he is lost with it all. He is my best friend. We have a connection unlike any other friend we have! We are definitely soulmates.

I'm in love with my best friend but he's moving off to college which is 8 states away in less than two weeks. In the past month we've been hinting to each other that we have feelings but I'm terrified that I'll hold him back from experiencing life. He's the one, but I messed up every other relationship and I don't want to risk hurting him.

I know how you feel. I had a failed marriage of 5 years and am currently in a relationship that is failing after 3 years. I have known my best friend for 22 years, and he has always been there for me. I know I love him, but I am so scared to tell him. I do not want to lose him. He recently told me, about a month ago, that he does care about me and does like me as more than a friend but is scared to mess up the friendship. I am now left wondering should I just be honest with him and tell him that I have the same feelings.

I did the unthinkable. Something I constantly told myself not to do when we first met. We met on Facebook because of mutual friends. I added her because I thought she was cute. At the time I had just gotten out of a relationship. My heart was broken so I vowed not to try to talk to her in that way. A few months passed and we started getting closer and closer. She became my best friend. We told each other everything. I never thought that I had liked her in that way. When she got into relationships or was just flirting with other females I got bothered. I became jealous. That's when I knew I was screwed. The day came when I finally met her and it was perfect. I cried when I saw her and was hugging her. It was an overdue hug. I stayed the night with her at her sisters house. That night was the night I knew I had fallen in love with my best friend. I couldn't help but look at her and smile. I feel stupid for falling for her. I can't ruin our friendship. I refuse to so I will hide my feelings.

I just want you to know that this feeling that your having is something that you can't help but you must know this, if you just keep blowing off your feelings your chance for happiness will pass you buy and you will live with nothing but regret. I had the same problem with my best friend and we are now in love madly but I waited 16 years to let her know and I wish I would have acted on it right away. I do believe that God sets our paths in life but that is my belief and I won't push religion on anyone. So take this advice from me, life is way too short and you never want to look back at life and say 'What If I' ???

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.

Then take a risk. Be bold, because if you wait too long, she won't know how much you care. Feelings get tangled and too confusing if you keep them to yourself. Don't wait for her to see that she brings out the best of you. If things go the way they're planned to, then go for it because odds are she loves you just as much.

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?
