Just another poem

by Amy Niggel

I tried to tell you
that what I wanted
and what you wanted
while they are inevitably the same
are still so far apart
and yet you fell in love anyhow
and I fell in love anyhow
and now look at us
we don't know what to do
we both know we shouldn't be together
and yet we can't bear to be apart
the world tells us it will never work
and I suppose somewhere in our hearts we feel that too
but there are other things that make me wonder
you make me smile
and you make me happy
and you make me a better person
we are best friends
I make you laugh
and I make you stable
and I make you a better person
so where do we go from here?
end it now before we get any further in
or see just how far we can press our luck?
I don't want to hurt you
but I don't want to lose you
life gets complicated now


Author's Note: This is based somewhat on a friend's current situation and somewhat on the lyrics "There's a danger in loving somebody too much and its your heart they can't trust there's a reason why people don't stay where they are baby sometimes love just ain't enough"
