Be Her Friend

Haven’t written any short poems for years (longer ones either). Inspired by lyrics of the Ballad of Serenity (Firefly TV series), I wrote these sentences to all the people who “could only be friends”.

Be Her Friend

2011.10.12

Give your love, give your heart,
Give your attention that pushes her far;
She doesn’t care, she smiles in silence,
She says you are one of her friends.

Take her out, to the dates,
Tell her your deep secrets;
From the beginning, to the end,
She never thinks of you more than a friend.

Plenty other fish in the ocean,
Moving forward you pretend.
But she’d better just be one of your friends.

Allspice@MITBBS posted a reply which is pretty funny:

Save your love, save your heart,
Save your attention that pushes me away,
I don’t care, I only smile,
What I can tell is you are one of my friends.

Take me out, to the dates,
Tell me your deep secrets;
From the beginning, to the end,
You are anyone but more than a friend.

Plenty other fish in the ocean.
Moving forward you’d better be,
I enjoy just being one of your friends.
