lovely friendship or friendly love

lovely friendship or friendly love

A Poem by Symplydymple

Not at first sight my views I show

Neither is it with experience that these words flow

For friendship should not ab initio enthuse

Or evolve at long last because of frequent use

But silence becomes the most fitting expression

That I should render to a girl of your fashion.

Too long have I sought asylum in simple speech

So i could a perfect endearment of you reach

But words; so tricky are those things

Beguiling even the most well intentioned beings.

My words love for friendship always trade

And friendship instead of love it made.

But whether love for friendship i should take

Or befriend you for love's sake

I've thought, I've mused, I've pondered

I've cogitated, I"ve wondered till I floundered


Okay! Let's say i open my arms

To receive your love along with its charms.

It will always be my utmost fear

That for my sake, you will shed a tear

A tear? no toreents may upon your breast rain

Announcing to all that inward pain

That the love of me has slapped upon your heart.

Overall, I dread that one day we will be apart.


Yet if your friend I should just remain

Then pardon me, how do you explain

The insomnia; the dreams of a sleepless night

That I spent with you yet out of your sight?

Tell me why at the sight of your face

I forget all the problems I face.

Is it for friendship's sake that i'd pay a hefty price

Just to be spectator to the opening of your eyes?


Hear this: I will only be your friend

If It will only fulfill love's end

But I will also accept love's ties

Only when i know in friendship it lies
