About the Poem
Many times after a deep relationship, the two people promise to remain friends. But in all reality it rarely ends like this . . . One is usually hurt more than the other and still craves the other causing the friendship to be very hard to maintain!
No Longer There
|Why is it
that we can never remain friends?
We were so close when we were together.
I thought of you as my best friend
but now that we are no longer a couple
it seems as if we've lost our trust,
our trust in each other and our love.
You say you want to be good friends,
but how can you think that I would hurt you
or tell your secrets
that you told me while we laid in each others arms
I wouldn't and couldn't ever hurt you
I can't be mad at you because it hurts to much
it hurts not to hear your voice
or not to see your face.
I miss you but I try to put you out of my mind
so that my heart won't ache anymore
I wish I didn't care so much.
I wish I didn't miss you
but I do
and I try to deny it
and I try to pretend I don't care
but I do
