Polite friends

May 16, 2009 § 5 Comments

We were friends
Maybe not
Maybe more
Maybe less
Maybe between friendship and what would never be

Polite friends
With Polite feelings
And Polite words

Feelings lingered
Dangled
Unsaid
Unspoken
Obvious secrets

Polite friends
With Polite feelings
And Polite words

We smiled
Some secret
Invisible kisses
Never shared
But wished for

Polite friends
With Polite feelings
And Polite words

On Saturdays we saw movies
But really saw each other
We held hands
That were never held

Polite friends
With Polite feelings
And Polite words

“I adore you” we would say
Three polite words
Burying three bolder words
That would never be said

Polite friends
With Polite feelings
And Polite words

You sat on my desk
You wore my shades
You sent me poetry
You wrote me a poem

“I wear you like an etching in my blood
For you will always be with me”

Polite friends
With Polite feelings
And Polite words
