    I'm in a situation
    There’s intrigue & anticipation
    I'm beguiled by what could begin
    Yet, there’s cause for hesitation
    'Cause in our conversations
    She tells me she only a friend
    Me, having complications
    Her, having obligations
    I know that my chances are slim
    Yet, her subtle flirtation
    Has founded my fixation
    Although she's only a friend

    My initial inclinations
    The pursuit of relations
    Because her smile is under my skin
    Having no expectations
    Merely appreciation
    For a body that can make a man sin
    She has caused activation
    Of such pleasant sensations
    Blowing my mind like the wind
    The factors in the formulation
    Of tremendous fascination
    Yet, she is only a friend

    Such powerful stimulation
    Intensifying infatuation
    I can no longer try to pretend
    Style & sophistication
    In the right combination
    Causing my resistance to bend
    I feel I'm in preparation
    Through improper motivation
    Spending energy I should not spend
    There is such frustration
    From futile fascination
    For she remains only a friend

    You need to be careful....I'm just telling you because
    you appear to be a really nice brotha.
    Those kind of friends can easily turn into
    someone that makes everything right
    in your world. No matter how hard you try or
    what you do you can't shake it.
    Sometimes them friends can move you like that.
    So having said that, if your
    not ready for her to be more than a friend
    you need to start doing some damage control NOW!!!!

    Really diggn' this joint, it's so on point.

    Much :uv

    Hi Arthur
    My goodness, very awesome flow
    First off this peace has rhythm.
    I love how your poem pulsate with each line
    And it makes the reader “read on”
    This is a wonder poem story
    About the attraction
    Splendid

    I would like to add
    Your poem is stuck in my head
    Because you had articulated a beat that makes
    It easy to memorizes.

    Peace & Love
