This is a love poem I wrote for a really good friend of mine. He and I used to always be best friends, then I fell in love with him but never told him. Then I didn't see him for a few months and thought I didn't love him any more. But he came over last night and I realized I do still love him. But he has someone else. So I'm happy for him. I just don't want him to stop loving me as a best friend.

The Way You Used to Love Me
So long without seeing
Months gone without you
Best friends talking
Sharing everything
From deep fears
To religion
Even sex
But for months that was gone
Jealousy died out
Of hearing of you and her
My love for you died out
Without you I was innocent
With you I begged to sin
Now your back
And I want you to stay
But we can never be
There is always hope
But not when you’re gone
I wish to hear you speak
About everything
Even if it’s about some other girl
I want you to notice
The way I stare at you
The way I act around you
I hope you see me
And know I’ll always be
Right here waiting for you
But know I would never
Get in your way
Never tell you what I think
When you stare at me
That I wish you feel the same
I could never tell you
For you have her
And she has you
The one thing I can never have
No matter how much I want to
If you’re happy I’m happy
Don’t think of me
Like you think of her
She’s beautiful
And I’m just me.
So love her with passion
The way I love you
But love me as a friend
The way you always used to
