I wonder what I mean to you?
You haunt me from inside.
The passion that I feel for you
keeps tearing as in tides.

You had me in a special place,
and then you let me go.
I said goodbye, you went your way,
I cried for you, you know!

Each time you called, I talked with you,
the hours passed on by.
We said our friendship meant the world,
the passion slowly died.

I finally grasped the thought that I
would never hold you close.
You called me up, and said we'd meet
for dinner up the street.

I met with you, and once again,
the feelings surfaced through.
I thought I would be strong enough
to talk and meet with you.

You drove me home, then looked at me,
and melted through my eyes.
You kissed me gently, I backed away,
I sadly said goodnight...

Very well said, Tulip. I have no answers, but this is so hard to bear...good luck.

You were strong Tulip ... you said 'goodnight' ....
Stated very beautifully ...

Very beautiful poem.  I hope you find your way through all of this.

Yes I know Tulip I guess it will always be true until the end of time... the deeper you get in the harder it is to walk away from a relationship.  You have expressed it very well.  James

Wonderful Poem,

I hope time heals your wounds.*S*


 The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, not the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship."

--Ralph Waldo Emerson

A very importent piece. It shows very sincere emotion that I have also dealt with. It's tough to make it through those long nights, but you will find a way.

Ugh... it sounds like those dreaded words I've heard too many times before. "We're too good of friends..." or something to that effect... I personally believe that the best relationship come from friendships.  Seems like the ones closest to me think otherwise though.  

If you need a little hope, I was engaged to the last person who said that to me... so it's not always a loss.

Anyways... very beautiful work... i know I'm a little late but I just found teh place today. =)   Good luck.

if it's the same to you I'll just hang."

White K-
Thank you for what you said.  I know there's hope, but sometimes it's best just to let go...
