what THEY think

Ok, so I like to talk to him
and he likes to talk to me.
But is that really such a crime?
Not that *I* can see.
So we visit on the weekends
and find each other in a crowd,
but we happen to be friends.
Isn't that allowed?
Every single girl I know
says he belongs with me.
And all of the boys
say the same to he.
But that is what THEY think
not the two of us.
I belive true love
is not something to rush.
So what if he sits by me,
and not by his sister?
So what if we talk through gym,
and never ever listen?
So what if he thinks
I am a place of peace?
So what if I think of him
as someone I can tease
without either of us
taking it the wrong way?
But then there is what THEY think
also what THEY say
and I find myself
confused and lost
becase no matter what THEY think
we are not
more than friends.

    Ever read this one- And think not while thou art, Thou art but what thou shalt be, Nothing; Thou shall not be Less. Soul searching!
