Realizing Love
Richard Sheak

I take a deep breath,
say four words and let my true tears fall,
when you answer me maybe this wont work at all,
friends we can still remain,
but since then no longer have i heard you speak my name,
felt your hand touch my palm,
heard your thoughts,
your deepest secrets that you hide,
I close my eyes as a tear rolls down my cheek,
and I imagine the words you speak,
the words you say,
the games you played,
the options I've tried,
to attempt to keep our friendship alive,
as I've failed in all of the above,
I admit by chance maybe i just fell in love,
my heartbrakes and it aches,
I've never felt so depressed,
and yet all the time I wish for only the best,
I wish for love,
I wish for everything to go my way,
I wish that all this hurt and all this pain would all just fade away,
I feel alone,
So unloved,
And yet i wonder is this how its meant to be?
I wish i meant to you what you so fondly mean to me,
I close my eyes as a tear rolls down my cheek,
And i imagine the voice you speak,
The words you say,
The games you play,
the options that i tried,
to attempt for our friendship to stay alive,
As i know that i have failed in all of the above,
I must admit i just fell in love.

"This is a poem about a friend who could've been so much more."

Nicole Wickham

Dreams don't always come true
and that I have to accept.
But you were so much better
than all the rest.
You always cared
and you always loved.
You were always there
when push came to shove.
I wanted so badly
to have you near.
But it's someone else
who you hold dear.
"Persist" you once told me
"Cause your dream might come true".
But when you gave me this advice
Did you know that my dream was you?
Sometimes I think you did
But then I'm not so sure.
It doesn't really matter anyway
Cause your advice I chose to ignore.
How could I persist
Once I knew the truth?
I couldn't even pretend to not know
Cause you'd given me the proof.
I dealt with it the best I could
And tried to hide my feelings from you.
But deep down inside of me
I am sure that you still knew.
So now I just sit and wait
And check the mail each day.
I hope that you are home real soon
Cause it's been lonely with you away.
