Never love a friend

By empty_love

High emotions,
nights full of laughs,
secretes always unfold,
things pass;

If you love a friend,
you'll be in for a high-tide ride;

Emotions get higher,
like snow caps on mountains
hiding your pains and fears;

Nights once full of reminising stories
are substituted for stressful sex

Secrets build into high tyrant empires,
every bump in the road is amplified
like towers that block the sun;

By the time the snow has melted,
and the towers have fallen
everything is lost....
its sand in the twisted wind

So if you value your heart
and a dear friend,
never love them more,
than just a friend.

    man...this is simply heartwrenching emotion at its purest. Pain, and truth, I dare to say. I can't think of a time I have ever dated a real good friend that has went well...This deserves a fav.
