    As I enjoy our times,
    Where we innocently spend,
    Filling each others voids,
    Each other’s gaps.
    You occupy my lap,
    As I run my hands through your locks,
    And massage your temple, your thoughts.
    And I wonder if they are about me.
    I feel like the day isn’t complete,
    Until I tell you about the trials,
    The day wanted me to meet,
    But they all melt away,
    As you caress my feet.
    And I wonder to myself,
    ‘Could you get any more sweet?’
    I share with you my weird,
    Adventures and fantasies,
    And instead of looking confused,
    You tell me that I’m incredibly unique.
    I let you in on my fears,
    On things that I normally keep inward.
    You take on the position of my bodyguard,
    And I’m wondering if you should.
    I tend to get caught up,
    Knot up, entangled up,
    Wrangled up,
    In what it is we have.
    I’m afraid I will display,
    Portray the physical,
    Of how mentally I may be going too far,
    Reflecting this picture,
    And getting a deeper meaning,
    Than what we really are….
    Friends...

    This was an awfully sweet picture you painted. Sometimes friendship doesn't go any further than that, and sometimes it turns into more. I enjoyed this scribe poet.
