Some People Think that Friends Should Just Be Friends


Some people think that friends should be just friends;

To try for more might ruin what they have.

I think the closest friend is one you love,

Sharing life with words and lips and hands.

One caress unravels mysteries

Lodged behind the most elaborate mask.

The revelation's more than worth the risk.

I want with you such sweet simplicities.

I want us to be friends who now are free

To speak with all the languages of touch.

I want to share your anguish with a kiss

And feel your happiness against my cheek.

We speak the same language, you and I. Thanks for being one of the few!
