Just Friends Poems

Just Friends Poems

Poetry about Friends and Lovers

Sometimes a relationship may start out romantic and turn into an ordinary friendship. However, an ordinary friendship is nothing to scoff at. A relationship between a boy and girl that is platonic can be very valuable. You may be able to share things with each other that you cannot share with anyone else. The two of you can help each other develop romantic relationships with others. The friendship did not go where you intended it to. Perhaps it went somewhere better.

  1. 1. If I Could Tell You

    • By Krystal
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2009

    I love this guy, but he doesn't know about my feelings. He is one of my best guy friends.

    When I see you in the morning,
    it brightens up my day.
    There are so many thoughts on my mind,
    so many words I want to say.

  3. 2. I'm Sorry

    • By M-Dog
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2011

    I was in love with my best friend. I thought we had a chance at first, but he then told me, in words no less painful, "I don't want to be with you." It hurt. A lot. And for a long time afterward, I was angry with him. But we're moving forward now, letting go and moving on, and this poem is to remind me that I'm partially responsible for what happened, too.

    I'm sorry for the things I've done.
    I'm sorry for what was said.
    I'm sorry for these words I write
    While lying here in bed.

    This is a poem that I wrote about my best guy friend. The problem is that I've fallen in love with him.

  6. 4. Friendship After Love

    In this poem, the poet, Ella Wheeler Wilcox, describes the frustration of former lovers who try to maintain their friendship. While they no longer wish to go back to the pain of their incompatible love, friendship after the intensity of love leaves them feeling "incomplete" and with "a sense of loss."

    After the fierce midsummer all ablaze
    Has burned itself to ashes, and expires
    In the intensity of its own fires,
    There come the mellow, mild, St. Martin days

  7. 5. Love Me In A Special Way

    • By Brianna Skye Campbell
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2017

    I had a huge crush on my best friend. He knew I loved him but never said anything about it. One day I told him how I felt, and he said he didn't feel the exact same way. All he ever wanted to be was friends. I remember running straight home with tears streaked down my cheeks. I felt terrible. The next day and the day after that, I acted as if none of it had ever happened. But then one day I couldn't hide the fact that I still loved him. Now I'm 15 and still love the boy.

    I know I can't force you to love me,
    But hear me out
    When I say
    I love you

  8. 6. Hidden Love

    • By Alexus Brinkley
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2011

    I wrote this poem for a girl I fell in love with. She knows I like her, but she does not know I fell for her. My friends all know. I want so badly to tell her, but I'm scared of what she will say or do. I'm scared that if I lose her I will lose a part of me, and I can't have that happen, so these feelings will stay hidden inside of me.

    I want you to know
    something I'm trying to hide.
    The way that I love you
    is stuck, bottled up inside.

  9. 7. Just A Friend

    This is a poem about a friendship across the miles, which grew deeper as years passed. Most of the time friendships will turn into a deeper affection. This poem was inspired by a real friendship that was honed by time and distance. It is hard to deal with this feeling of loneliness when both of you are miles apart. But in the near future as God's plan, there will be a grand reunion and revelations of some hidden feelings that only the two hearts will understand.

    I'm praying for a long, lost friend;
    Hope he'll show up again!
    My heart is really in pain.
    Sometimes I want to forget him;

  10. 8. No More Than Friends

    We are all human with true emotions and complex feelings. I know we all feel this way about someone. And whether we can admit it or not, to make that extra step into taking your friendship even further is a decision that is very hard to make. To fall in love with your friend is a tough situation, but things do happen for a reason. I truly believe it.

    It is so quick how we forget
    The very first time we met.
    My heart skipped a few beats
    As I tried to catch my breath.

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2008

    The person I wrote this poem about is one of my closest friends, and he is very special to me, as you can probably see in the poem.

    Why do I feel this way
    I stutter and don't know what to say
    What makes you so special

    • By Martina
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2016

    I found myself falling too far for someone who did not have feelings strong enough for me.

    I often find myself staring into your eyes,
    And to no surprise, I'm hypnotized.
    You look at me like I'm special.
    So why do you think it would be a hassle?

    To everyone who loves their best friend yet can never say how they feel. This is for you.

    When I cry, you wipe my tears.
    You've been there for me all these years.
    When I am scared, you hold me tight.
    Loving you is wrong, but it feels so right.

  14. 12. Is It To Late Or Is There Still Time?

    • By Faith Mendez
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2008

    I fell in love with my best friend, and when I told him how I felt, he told me I wasn't ready for him and urged me to go out with other guys. When I went out, I realized that my heart wouldn't allow me to, but it was already too late. I hurt him because he didn't expect me to give up on him that easily. But I want to fight for him, and that is what I have been doing.

    If he is ready to date
    I have no chance
    I would already be too late
    For there to be romance

    • By Aj Regacho
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2016

    "Loving a friend secretly is one of the hardest thing to deal with." Sacrifices are to be made. This poem is based on my experience during my college days. I kept hidden all of the feelings for four years and sacrificed those for the sake of our friendship.

    You're asking why I care for you this way.
    You're asking how I could smile every day.
    Having you around makes my day smooth and easy.

Chris is now trying to go out with her, but Chris is more of a one week hookup type guy, and she's into longer relationships. I don't want her to get hurt.

    This is about a friend who I had fun with, and then when he met someone, I realized it hurt too much for it to be just friends. When I told him about this, his reaction was one of it should have been prevented. It is about rejection when there was no one to reject, and loss when there was nothing to loose.

    Seven hours before or seven after.
