I see him whisper in her ear,
I feel my heart ache,
I see him kiss her without fear,
I feel my heart break.

I see them all around me,
These happy, smiling pairs,
They drive me to insanity,
Why can't I have that? It''s not fair.

I love hanging out with you,
But I want something more,
I try to tell you in all that I do,
I may as well knock down the door.

You see me as I friend,
I know this to be true,
I'll love you to the end,
I just wish I could tell you,

I love you, yes it's true,
It isn't that hard to see,
Tell me if you love me too,
Then you and I could be

So much
So much
So much more.
So much
So much
So much more.

I want that for us,
That loving certainty,
No need to fuss,
It's the way it was meant to be

I wish that you were bolder,
But I guess that's why I love you,
I see the way he holds her,
That's not what we'd do.

I think I know you love me,
But I can't help but doubt,
There is nothing I can see,
That shows me what you're thinking about.

You see me as I friend,
I know this to be true,
I'll love you to the end,
I just wish I could tell you,

I love you, yes it's true,
It isn't that hard to see,
Tell me if you love me too,
Then you and I could be

So much
So much
So much more.
So much
So much
So much more.
I wish...

I wish I could read your mind,
So I could see what you're thinking about,
I wonder what I'd find,
Would it make me want to shout

Yes! I knew it!
Now I can get on with it,
Or no! I blew it!
He doesn't love me one bit.

I'm hoping that you're not
Thinking anything that would hurt me,
I wish that I could spot,
Proof that you'll love for infinity.

You see me as I friend,
I know this to be true,
I'll love you to the end,
I just wish I could tell you,

I love you, yes it's true,
It isn't that hard to see,
Tell me if you love me too,
Then you and I could be

So much
So much
So much more.
So much
So much
So much more.

I love you....
I want you...
Is it enough to make you
Love me too?
I wish...

i liked this poem quite a bit, it brought out the uncertainty that you feel when you want to know if he loves you, thats exactly what makes a poem something that poeple will lovew to read, the ability to put your emotions on the paper, great job, and an even better poem, a five for this poem

Another great piece. Once again relatable and honest. Also very song-like. Once again though, some parts flowed awesome, and some not so much. Keep writing.

It's really thoughtful and once again honest. =)

i actualy liked this piece of work, despite the fact that its a love poem. it stuck a cord deep within me that is rarely touched by words strung together, one of the true rarities to me. a piece that i will never forget, it draws out the perspective of both how you feel about this freind and your fear of what he might do when told.
