Emotional Imbalance

My knees get weak-

As you whisper;

Sweet nothings in my ear.


I start to shiver

At the words delivered,

Our fate becoming clear.


You caress my skin, 

Leaving trails of kisses;

Every place you touch.


My breath deepens-

As your mouth meets mine.

The pleasure is getting to be too much.


Our passion is apparent.

Our kisses become rhythm.

Our love becomes a song.


I could never really fathom,

How these feelings could be;

So wrong.


Now I sit and think,

Of how it had to end.

Our closeness is slowly dying.


If I said that I could forget about you-

this feeling of being safe;

I know that I would be lying.


Every time I see you,

I want to press your body to mine;

I want to hold you tight.


I love you-

Even though I know that;

You can't be- 'Mr. Right'.


So the struggle continues;

I'll always love you-

Until the end. 


It kills me to know...

 that you can't think of me;

as nothing but a friend.
