Maybe I wasn’t the one,
And maybe she wasn’t either.
But after all of that I couldn’t bring myself to leave her-
she’s too much fun.
She’s my favorite person to be around,
only my friend, but she’s a keeper
we’ve similar dreams, she’s a believer
She’s the coolest gal I’ve ever found.
Can’t blame me for trying,
Made some sacrifices but gained no ground.
And if I said I didn’t want her for myself, I’d be lying
Her laugh, so precious, I was hypnotized by my favorite sound.
But now I’ve come to terms, it’s only fair.
I can’t not talk to you forever,
I need you there - somewhere.
I want you to find a love and a happiness,
and if it meant I got to see you smile,
and if it meant you were truly happy,
I wouldn’t mind if you didn’t find it with me.
I recently fell so soul-crushingly in love with another artist only after knowing her for so little time. I'm dumb. She isn't into me. I can't bring myself to distance myself either, as she was an awesome friend prior to making my declaration. I know her heart's got its own pursuits and I wrote this poem to make it clear to her that I was okay with how things were going to be. I'm not okay with it but she read this poem and understood. Things are okay.
