Friends Again

Hot urban nights

Her suburban insights

Guide me on a tremulous journey through emotions

We connect with ease

Suddenly a cool breeze

Awakens an all familiar badgering notion

I distinctly recall the moment of realisation

It caused my heart to rend

Should have seen it in her eyes

Albeit she tried to disguise

She wants me only as a friend

Have I become to her a bore?

Can one ever be sure?

I might have taken too long to ask

I can’t help but question my esteem

Her words are not what they seem

I wish she’d remove that voodoo mask

With ferocity my thoughts start to darken

When another fool she opts to befriend

So fiercely the blood

Rushes through my veins

When she introduces me just as a friend

With her angelic smile

If only for a while

She appeases my intoxicated yearn

Why do I torture myself so?

Shall I accept the status quo?

And let this flame burn

In our river of shared moments

I bathe joyfully and pretend

Nothing but a graceful attempt

As I mourn with contempt

At knowing I’m only a friend

Upon my exiting her realm

She stood at the helm

With her starlit curls dancing in the wind

I knew these moments I would miss

Though I’d have traded them all in for a kiss

Instead I just stood there, naive and chagrined

And as the night clouds blanketed the city

She humoured when she’d see me again

Weak and blurred

I muttered the words

Why whenever you desire, friend.
