    Best Friend

    I can always talk to you about any and everything
    Except this.
    I mean I can't be sure if this moment of revelation will
    be well accepted.
    See somewhere between us liking the same things,
    you know music, sports, cars
    and us having the same opinion on poltics and world views
    I started to view you differently
    I saw more than the silly guy who made me laugh
    I saw more than the shoulder I could lean on
    I wanted those arms to hold me for more than support
    Wanted those hands to do more than lift me up when I was down
    See I needed that smile to be just for me and about me.
    But as I sit here and swallow deeply ready to tell you
    everything I've been holding in my heart
    I open my mouth and say
    "Wanna get a pizza?"
    Maybe this a conversation for another day. ​

    The best of relationships start as friendships, and yet... How do we know for sure when and if that line should be crossed? Will it ruin the friendship? Does he/she feel the same? The thing is, there is no sure way to predict these things. Your expression was dead on poetess.
