What does it even mean?
Is it really just a casual thing
Friends just enjoying company
Is that all it really is?
I mean if our hands bump accidently
And Somehow start to intertwine
Are you going to pull your hand away
Maintaining boundaries consistently
You looking surprised
You saying we just friends right
I’m looking embarrassed
I’m saying yeah, you right….
What do I do?
When I feel different about you
It is not clear to me
How can I be your friend
And manage these feelings
Openly providing unbiased advice
But I am biased as hell
A clear conflict of interest
Holding in what I need to say
Because it is more important to me
That you hear the comfort you need
So I calm down my every greed….
Shaking my head in disbelief
Another missed opportunity
The day is not yet complete
Already accepting the silent words
Things better left not said
Better to pretend in this reality
Because if you knew the truth
In its full totality
It would set you free
Nothing would ever be said again
Worst of all
We wouldn’t even be friends….
If Love is truly love
Nothing needs to be said
The feelings pass through the ether
Growing with new energy
Can’t you already see it
Not just casual check-ins
I’m talking proper Good Mornings
If you could see the smile I giving
There is no way you could doubt this
It will be something or nothing
Mos Def was all I needed to hear
