I am sorry

Just Me

I have never felt more alone

than those times when I am with you

because in those moments 

I am the happiest and saddest woman

in the world

Because in those moments

I don't know how to love you 

as much as you love me

because my heart belongs

somewhere else

with someone else

because you are nothing more

than a good friend

with an honest heart

and a beautiful soul

and for that

I am sorry.


Author's Notes/Comments: 

I really do sound rather pretentious in implying that someone loves me so much but I feel like Im at this place in my life where I have good friends who love me but I feel like I'm so hung up on someone that I cannot appreciate my friends the same. Mostly this poem isn't about love but friendship. I hope I conveyed my

message well and I hope you enjoyed reading! As always thank you for taking the time to do so!

A "friend", who is a real

A "friend", who is a real friend, in every sense of the word, understands and knows their place when it comes to a significant other. I hear people say use the phrase "female friend", and "male friend", which is something that is nowhere near the same as "significant other". Yes, you still have friends when you have a significant other, but if they are truly friends, and your significant other is truly a "significant" other, both parties know the importance of the relationship and the "significance" of the significant other for you. They honor the boundary. If they do not, they are no friend!!!!


Simple as that!!! 



...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

I liked the read. Very much

I liked the read. Very much relatable for me. Know this feeling well. But a good friend is still that. And there's definitely love there. Just maybe not the type your friend wants. Hard place to be in...

it is definitely a difficult

it is definitely a difficult place to be in. I'm sorry you relate to this as it's a position no one likes too much and one which benefits neither person. Glad you enjoyed reading though and thank you for commenting!

I've been in that position

I've been in that position all too many times. And on both ends of the stick. You're right, either way sucks. I am sorry that you are going through it now. My heart goes out to you both... as well as the one who has your heart.
