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
