How would you feel if you knew that I lied to you - because you needed a friend, not a lover?

I lied to you

When you asked me

Who I liked

I lied to you

And said:

No one


Truth is?

It was you.

Always you

But what you needed

The most, right now

Was not a lover

But a friend


You needed someone

Who could listen





And you didn’t want

To find that in a lover

You wanted

Someone’s shoulder

To cry on


But you didn’t want

That someone

To be your lover


And so I lied to you

Told you that

It wasn’t you

That I was only here

As your friend


And now

I can’t turn it over

I can’t tell you

The truth


Because when you needed me most

I was your friend

And not your lover.
