    You were always so perfect to me,
    so soft and gentle,
    cherishing you instantly,
    without a second glance,
    I never distrusted those eyes,
    that lied to me continuously,
    I promised you I'd always try,
    but slowly you were losing me.

    I would always have given you anything,
    just to keep your interest,
    stopping my heart from remembering,
    all the pain you caused,
    I never pulled away from that kiss,
    that held a painful hint of truth,
    Maybe you'd be too hard to miss,
    so I said I was still in love with you.

    I wanted more than just the infatuation,
    that you found in me.
    You said love was only a distraction,
    that you really didn't need,
    so I cried myself to sleep,
    knowing the times we shared must end.
    You couldn't let emotion run deep,
    you said you made love to me, as a friend.

    But eventually, my love,
    friendships fade, too,
    and I can't make love and walk away,
    pretending I don't love you.
    Never once did I push you away,
    but everything comes to end,
    so all that's left to say,
    is goodbye,

    I loved loving you, my friend.

    I HAVE TO AGREE WITH TANTRUM ON THIS ONE WOW. THE WAY YOU EXPRESSED YOURSELF IN THIS POEM WAS JUST PERFECT. I'M SORRY FOR YOUR PAIN AND I CAN SAY THAT BECAUSE AFTER READING YOUR WORDS I CAN FEEL IT. KEEP DOING YOUR THING POET CAN'T WAIT TO READ MORE.
