We talk, we laugh,

Best friends

Last forever.

Am I correct in assuming

You’d leave her

For me?

For years we’ve

Followed and Led

Each other.

Best friends

Last forever.

But She follows you now.

Painful, dark,

Sad months have gone by…

If I said it

“I need you.”

Would you

Run away and

Join me?

I don’t think so.

We talk, we laugh,

Our friendship shines…

 

But love…

 

It burns me to the utmost degree,

Down to my bones.

Am I wrong?

For years I’ve

Followed as you Led me.

Differences…

Yes, the painfully, painfully exist.

From you,

To Her,

To me.

And we’ve changed.

Now my desire to

Lead

Overflows my once subtle and

 Obedient heart.

“I need you.”

Will you follow?
