Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

Falling for my friend

My intentions from the beginnings were honorable you see,
All I wanted to be was your friend, to be in your company.
As time passed my feelings transformed and like evolved into love,
And now I kneel praying for forgiveness from the one up above.

I can't lose our friendship; it means more to me than life
But selfishly I know this will cause a lot of pain and strife.
I know it's a delusion but I am holding it close to my heart
And that's where it will stay forever to ensure we will never be apart.

A day might arise when I must make a declaration of guilt
This day we will be able to share all the memories we have built,
Not knowing what the future holds or if this is even a probability
That one day our love will stand tall without instability
