Take my Heart and Break It

Take my broken heart,
and rip it from my chest.
Steal away my soul,
and finally put me to rest.

I dreamt about you day and night,
and I wanted you to be mine.
You watched me in my hardest days,
and sometimes you watched me shine.

Every time I saw you,
my heart would skip a beat.
Every time you said my name,
I would spring out of my seat.

I loved you with my heart and soul.
I loved you year after year.
But something always kept us apart:
our confusion, our chances, our fear.

But now there is no hope for us,
we are doomed to be apart.
Maybe I won't feel the pain
if you completely break my heart.

Wow. I felt this, like I really felt it. I know what you're saying and I couldn't have written it better myself. I always write about this kind of stuff, it just helps to get it out there.

I Love Love Love this poem. It applies to me so well. I have feelings for my best friend but I know I can never tell him. If we were to end badly, our friendship would never be the same.
