In a Different Light

In a Different Light

A Poem by butterfly

I see in a different light
Suddenly a friend I don’t mind
He is helping me heal and he doesn’t know
Yet I can’t give in but its suddenly nice to not be alone
Thats all I want please don’t be a friendly ghost
I don’t know what I want
There is a lot of fear in me
I am still getting over this cut
I know this is where I need to be
I feel the right in my gut
I am learning to stand on my own
There is still a mountain to climb
I need to find the courage for a longer drive
Today we laughed and had a good conversation
Its a nice distraction
From the mundane fascination
Healing from foolish infatuation
I write about heartbreak dramatic
In the end I am just a crazy fanatic
There was a light that glowed
I had to touch I had to get to know
There was something in his eyes
His voice fell on me like a chunk of snow
For a time I was mesmerized
He wooed me and never spent a dime
He got to know me inside
He took his time
Opened the door
Text me sweet words I never  read before
If you ask me why I saw a friendship in a different light
It made us want to cling on tight
We must have been lonely in our paths of life
Now I realize our destines aren’t entwined
Maybe not now I dreamed we were discovered by your wife
She cried
I can’t be the reason I won’t pay that price
Yet I am thankful for each day love came inside
When I saw you in a different light.
