Best Friend

Best Friend

A Poem by JanBlake

"Love me like you love her"


In my warped mind I was jealous of your love for her

I was selfish and unhappy and didnt want you to be at ease

I gave up on me and wanted you to give up on her

In and out and out and in, I went back & forth with my emotions

We spoke about our friendship, love, empathy, sympathy, and compassion

It was then that I realized that you were in love

The light in your eyes, the spark in your soul was evident

It was then that I realized you had found your soul

It was then that I knew you found comfort in one person whom you so affectionatly called, your baby

I listened because we are friends and I'm not supposed to be in love with you

It was then that I knew it was time for me to let go

It was then that my heart became hollow

It was then that I became rational

It was then that I realized you could never love me like you love her

It was after our many conversations that I silently cried to myself, and my sigh was that of longer in pain

Wondering about the unknown

It was then that this all became clear

Picture perfect

It was the end to a painful struggle that I had with myself

A listless love we never shared

No love for me...but happy you found love with her

At least one of us is happy.
