My Lie

December 15, 2008
By Andrew Smallwood, Louisville, KY

I see her everyday
Her beautiful face
Her gracefully flowing hiar
And she sees me
But as a friend; as a brother
I see her as more
But convince myself
That it could never be
It will never happen
The way I dream
I tell others that it could never be
That we’re friends
And nothing more.
But inside I know
That she is the one
I always dream of being with
I hope that one day
The lies that I tell myself will dissipate
And my love can be shown
But not today
I push the thoughts to the back of my mind
I will never have the courage
To tell her how I truly feel
And so I let the days pass
She’s my friend; my sister
But it’s only a lie
