Hey baby, are you listening out there?
I haven’t heard from you in a while
and this is feeling more like a prayer
I haven’t stopped thinking about you
since you first caught my eye
And do you remember the first time
I kissed you cause you were too shy
We lit a flame but baby do you still feel the heat
when you’re so far away?
I wonder if she enjoys being in your arms as much as I did
Does she know how good she has it?
Does she adore you as well as I did?
I never tasted lips so sweet before
Does she feel the same
Or are you somehow playing for second place?
She has thousands more nights by your side
Does she know what I would give for just one more?
I hope she treasures you
I hope she doesn’t take for granted
What was so precious to me.
I wish you were a weaker man
Maybe just for me
But I admire the high moral standards
you hold yourself to
It’s yet another reason I like you.
There’s no winning for me
When you’re not mine
I’m looking for your attention
even though I know she has all yours
Maybe its for the best
and I should Give up the rest
Of everything we could have been.
I’m sure I could fall
Out of love with you
If you just gave me the chance.
Let me see why you’re no good for me
So I can finally let this fantasy die
She just likes the attention you give
But refuses to claim you as hers.
You’re a warm body to waste time with.
You gave her your heart
And she squeezes it in her hand
Testing its tenderness.
Do you wish I had hated you?
Make it easier so you didn’t have to risk any hurt
No late night phone calls, no deep conversations
where you let down walls and I open up my heart a crack
I wish I had hated you too
and feel nothing as I walk away.
instead you’re charming with your goofy smile.
warm and bright, showing your strength in so much struggle.
Should you date your friend? Or perhaps more accurately, is it worth the risk to date your friend and possibly lose the friendship if it does not work out?
Lots of solid relationships state that an important component is their friendship. Sometimes they start out as friends and some times they don’t, but always they insist that their significant other is their best friend who they tell all their embarrassing stories, hopes, and fears to. So one might think dating a friend would be a great idea because that aspect is already there and has built a strong foundation.
Of course once you cross that threshold from just friends to more than friends, its near impossible to go back. This has got to be the strongest reason people with crushes on their friends give for not pursing it. They don’t want to lose that friendship and closeness. They would rather have them in their life as a friend then risk becoming closer and then ending up with nothing. Sometimes friends don’t want to mess up the group dynamic by dating or sub consequently breaking up.
The thing is if you’ve naturally floated into the territory of daydreaming about one friend in particular then it may be worth digging into. He already knows your interests and dislikes pretty well. You already know about his bad habits and future plans. If you know all this and still can’t stop thinking about him then it may be time to start pushing the friendship boundary and see if he feels the same way about you.
If you don’t try, you’ll always wonder. You may become self conscious or doubt yourself more if you start thinking, well why hasn’t it crossed his mind yet to date me!? Maybe he didn’t think you’d like him back, maybe he has too much on his plate and wouldn’t be able to give you the effort you deserve. All I know is that it’s an unhealthy mental state to be wondering about all the possibilities and insecurities without any sold facts. It will give you a peace of mind to hear his sides of things no matter the outcome.
You drive my mind crazy with questions about us
Do you like me?
Should we date?
What are we doing?
Am I trying too hard?
Should I let that comment slide?
When are you going to see me again?
Is this love?
I lean closer.
You pull away.
I want more.
You are stuck in the comfort.
I am shoving
There will never be an us because
we won’t work.
It will always be a You and an I.
