    “I never intended for it to go any further than this
    And I didn’t want to hurt your feelings
    But I just want to be friends.”
    >
    Best said, is the ladies anthem
    And you’ll hear it played over and over again
    If you’re no immediate threat to the couchie
    No liberator of the hips
    No invader of the lips
    Or No potential conquistador into her heartland
    However, you of all people can get a date
    Because you put on the world’s greatest show
    You’re a Ringley Brother
    And if there was a metaphor to sum it all up
    You’re the court jester performing for a Queen
    In the absence of her King
    You make her smile,
    Make her laugh
    And when it’s all said and done you don’t expect payment
    Because you do it simply from the heart
    And looking at her is just as good as gold
    Yet you wait attentively to hear it, the final
    “Goodnight!”
    Then watch as your gold is melted right before your eyes
    Nonetheless, she still hands you out a hug as if you were charity case
    But you don’t refuse because deep in your heart you know this the only ration of love you’ll ever receive from her.
    So you take it and go.
    Get back in your car; drive the long road home with her hug still clinging to your body
    Get home,
    Walk through the door, put your keys on the dresser,
    Take off your shoes, brush your teeth, and put on your boxers
    Then lay back on the pillow in the bed with your arms crossed behind your head
    As you smell the scent of her perfume still running through your nostrils.
    Not before long you’re getting high off a hug
    Seeing her face in the cracks of you’re ceiling right before you pass out
    To have the best dream you’ve ever had in your life.
    Only to have it abruptly interrupted by the screaming alarm telling you its time to go to work.
    So you wake up hung over on her to the sober reality of
    It’s never going to Happen!
    Put back on your clothes, strap on your boots, grab your id and go to work like you’ve always done.
    And while you’re on your lunch break
    You sit at the table by yourself staring at the ceiling
    As a coworker passes you by asking, “Are you alright?”
    Your response being, “Sure, I’m just thinking.”
    But the truth is you were daydreaming, still looking at her in the ceiling because it’s the only high you have left
    When you’re getting stoned to death from being just a friend.

    Got what I need!
    You say Im just a friend..

    Yea i memba that line.
    Said it time n time..
    I was in love with the image of him..
    but never wanted to let fate win..
    And hate n anger crept in..
    when you no longer have a friend..
    just a guy...
    who was one your men.

    Nice piece...but you do know, your opening is not just the female calling card? It goes both ways. I've been/am there...and well said my friend. I feel you 100%. Even a phone call gives you a high.
