Only Friends

it felt like
fire
being in her arms
but the tighter i held on
the colder she became

it tasted like
home
her lips on mine
but the more i longed for her
the more strange she was

it felt like
love
the time i spent with her
but the time passed by
and i realized we were

only friends

    I can tell you a quote Aristotle used twice for two different subjects. " Love is one soul in two bodies" "A friend is one soul in two bodies" I think it the greatest instances of each both of these definitions are valid, and we love our true friends, a love that if compared to a social/sexual/living companion/ whatever relationship that would leave us saying, I realized we were only lovers and not friends. I liked your poem Nice work.

    Hm, a victim of lust mixed w/a "need" for love. But, not love itself. This is why lust, as powerful as it is, is very short-lived. I understand this piece very well. Excellent job!
