I can never be “just friends” with you.
Maybe because your eyes remind me so much of the nights
we fell asleep wrapped in each other’s warmth.
Or maybe when you smile it makes my body shiver because
I know that smile used to be because of me.
I can’t see that with my eyes and pretend like it’s okay.
Because it’s not. I can’t be just friends with you Because every time I see you I fall in love again.
