    I wrote this back in the old afronet days.....never posted it....



    This wasn’t supposed to happen
    I mean we were friends
    Never even flirted with the idea
    Of anything more
    I was there when you had others
    Offering advice
    You did the same for me
    After all we were friends
    So when did things change
    When did we realize that
    We desired one another
    Our tastes are so different
    Our preferences not even the same
    Yet we were just friends
    Never envisioned us walking hand in hand
    Never woke up wet dreaming about you
    Why?
    We were just friends
    Scribing together in rhyme
    I knew your situation
    You knew mine
    Yet in the midst of it all
    The script got flipped
    Found ourselves
    Crossing the line
    When we were just supposed to be friends
    Changed my whole way of thinking
    My world
    Upside down
    Never thought we could get into each other like this
    We decide it would just be this one time
    Can’t happen again
    After we were just supposed to be friends
    Yet time after time
    We keep laying it on the line
    Experiencing each other in a different light
    One in which we just can’t find
    So we will ride it out
    To see how it all ends
    Between 2 lovers who started out as friends

    This reminds me of that song by Musiq half crazy..how they started off as friends became lovers..but now they aren't really friends anymore...hope that this ends differently.
