How do you tell your friend that after years of friendship you have suddenly realized that you are in love with them?
How do you love that friend, knowing you have no chance?
How do you tell your self that the love you feel isn't real?
How do you tell yourself that your love can't be revealed?
A friend so close that acting on your feelings would be it?
But what do you do with feelings that linger on your mind?
Hold on to your feelings, nurture them and let them grow.
For a best friends love is the strongest you'll ever have.
And maybe one day, they'll get that you're the one for them.
Just like you knew so very long ago.
