I can’t even look you in the eyes when you pass me in the hall,
Afraid of your reaction if you did see me look,
You left me speechless after you made me fall,
I was afraid you’d forget the memories but that’s all you took.

There’s so many unanswered questions but I know it’s to late to ask,
I lost my chance and now I have all these feelings I have to mask,
You say you’ll be there for me to talk to and you will never find it awkward,
But I’ve heard this all before and it all went downward.

You seemed different than anyone I’d ever met,
You made me laugh and i told you things that I’d never told anyone, I bet,
You made it seem like I was always giving and never receiving
You made me think you felt the same as me, so deceiving.

I know you will never feel the same towards me,
And now I just feel like I’m just being a pain,
But the effect you had on me will always be,
Maybe it’s just me I feel the pain and everyone else feels the gain.

Now I’m afraid to talk to you or even text you like we use to,
But now I have to move on and realize there’s nothing I can do.
The past is the past and now I need to stop thinking about you like I use to.
So now I just keep my head down and my lips sealed, ‘cause that’s all I can do.

Shannen Wrass- The Perfect Friend

“Today I found a friend
who knew everything I felt
she knew my weakness
and the problems I’ve been dealt.
She understood my wonders
and listened to my dreams;
she listened to how I felt about life and love
and knew what it all means.
Not once did she interrupt me
or tell me I was wrong
she understood what I was going through
and promised she’d stay long.
I reached out to this friend,
to show her that I care
to pull her close and let her know
how much I need her there.
I went to hold her hand
to pull her a bit nearer
and I realized this perfect friend I found
was nothing but a mirror.”
