"We can't choose where we come from, but we can choose where we go."- Perks of Being A Wallflower

Whenever you look my way,
I look away for some unknown reason,
Is it the fact that I like you,

Or is it the fact that you’re always with your girl friends.

What’s the reason that I like you,
Could it be your shaggy blonde hair,
Or may it be your chocolate brown eyes,
I know you’ll never like me as more than a friend.

Why is it that you’ll never like me as more than a friend,
I like you so much more than a friend,
It hurts me every day to see you,
And not be with you.

Why can’t we ever be together.

I wrote this poem about 8-10 months ago about a guy i really like(d). And now he and my best friend are going out. I forgave her for it. And they both knew. But I still forgave her for it. So I wrote this to let my emotions out.
