I don’t want to be “Friends”

You and I dissemble and disconnect
painfully we pretend that things are fine
but my heart aches for you, I must confess
earthquakes of emotion are hard to hide
I can hardly conceal my crushed spirit
forcibly I fight my feelings for you
desperate attempts to hide my intentions
it’s evident to your love I’m subdued
I can’t stand to stay here in the unknown
do you care my bleeding heart beats for you?
I beg of you not to give me false hope
I need to know if you still want me too.
Love like ours comes only once in this life
for me your friendship shall hardly suffice
