    Just Friends
    by Monad.poetress


    Six years and counting
    we've been nothing but friends
    You've been there to console me
    To laugh with me, to hold me

    But the other day you showed up at my door
    You were still my friend but now you wanted more
    I turned to walk away but you grabbed me by the hand
    The kiss you planted on me made me think again
    On deciding that maybe we should just remain friends

    Now this is where all the problems begin
    First it was that tempting kiss
    that brought you back through the door
    Then it was the playful kissing that made me long for more

    Next it was the wrestling that really turned me on
    Now I forget you are a friend and look "my clothes are gone"
    Then I stop to think "girl what the hell are you doin"
    Don't you see a good friendship you are about to ruin

    Then there was the lovemaking that made me forget six years
    Followed by the pillow talk where you erased all my fears

    Now comes the embarrassment as I talk to you at work
    It seems as if everyone is watching me, even the store clerk

    Now you're on my couch laughing at a show
    And I'm wanting you so much so I decide you need to go
    But you won't cause you know whats on my mind
    You say its too late we already crossed the line

    I know the sign says STOP
    and the arrows say STAY AWAY
    but I am ignoring all those signs
    I gotta take care of you today

    Cause you got a silly little smirk
    That I gotta do wipe away

    I guess we'll be just friends again ONE DAY....

    Yea, but that day is not today....This flowed so genuinely, how we get into a situation so fast, that it seems like it "just happened". Enjoyed this piece.

    Sister...

    this was an awesome piece
    Great flow and rhythm
    Great imagery...
    Poignant emotion
    ....Absolutely gripping
    and coming from someone
    who's been in this position
    most of all this piece
    was too real for comfort...

    Encore @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
