Just Friends


I pretend we're just friends,
but I have to admit that
I wish we were something more.


I could get used to your kiss,
and your smile makes me happier
than anything else in my life.


I've tried to force
our heartbeats to be in sync,
but we were out of rhythm.


Alas, it's not meant to be.
You're wrong for me;
we're too different, you and I.


Heaven knows I want love;
I'm a hopeless romantic
but tired of broken hearts.
