We cannot change the cards we're dealt just how we play the hand
Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted
It's pretty easy to be smart when you're parroting smart people
-Randy Pausch


She can hold you tight
I can hold you tighter
But the touch of my arms
Would burn you like a sin
Because what is a best friend
But a best friend and no more?

She’d have let you cry
And my shirt would be soaked
But the tears would sting
Like acid on my skin
For if I couldn’t have you
What’s the use of friendship?

She would stroke your hair
I’d already have my fingers knotted
But the hair would fall
From my fingers like rain
Because these fingers aren’t meant
To be used in that way

She will care for you ‘til she dies
I will love you for the rest of my existence
But you’ll never know, you’ll never know
You’ll never know what I would do
Because what am I but a best friend?

No, not my personal life, no worries. But some of these lines just ran across my head and left footprints. Now THAT'S good imagery...not:D

I think this is so deep. It makes me think this friend is giving up so much. Excellent detail too.

I like the comparisons between you and the best friend in the story. :D Good job expressing yourself through that person's point of view!
