Friends or More

Friends or More

A Poem by Lyghea

We haven't known each other long,
but sometimes you know more about someone in 2 days than 2 months.
We've opened up to each other
Though you seem to think it won't matter now.

I'm not just another one of your girls
I'm not going to flee at the first signs of hardships.
Friends or more, I'm here to stay.
Nothing you have or ever will say can make me flee in fear.

We've both struggled with relationships in the past,
Causing walls to be built and guards taller than skyscrapers to loom around us.
The subconscious fear of letting someone else in is haunting
Though we both know deep down we're good for each other.

Friends or more,
I'm not leaving your side.
We share a best friend,
And she's secretly rooting for us.

It's no coincidence that we met
It's no luck, personality, or what have you that we vibe well together.
Giving each other the benefit of the doubt,
Giving each other a chance could prove everything we thought we knew to be wrong.

I don't want some pointless summer fling
Or to jump in the deep end just to make life more interesting.
I want to grow and build,
Friends or more.

The comfort I've felt has been a long time coming
The anxiety vanishes, my heart racing, butterflies filling me from head to toe.
I crave who you are - affectionate, honest, real.
I crave your soul, no matter how cheesy that may sound.

It's been a while since I've been openly affectionate with someone
Yet I sit here thinking of all those small moments with you.
A brush of the arm, your leg barely against mine,
A long, tight, bury-your-face-in-me hug.

Friends or more
I'm a ride or die, just as our best friend is to each of us.
I hope for more,
But I'll take what I can if it means I get to know you.

Author's Note

It may not make a whole lot of sense, but when your mind works faster and in no chronological order (anyone with anxiety def will understand; not saying other wouldn't), it just sort of comes out how it did above.
