Clover Poetry Series: When You Have Feelings for Your Best Friend

Clover Poetry Series: When You Have Feelings for Your Best Friend

The inspiration behind this poem is a boy in my life who is one of my best friends, but I also care about him as more than a friend. He doesn't see me like that; it hurts, yet I still hope that someday he will. In the meantime, he is an incredible friend and I will respect him by avoiding the subject and treating him only as a friend.

"I Can't Help It"

I can't help the way my eyes light up,
How my heart flips,
How my smile widens,
When I'm around you.

I can't help the laughter that bubbles up inside of me,
At every joke,
The pang of wishful thinking,
When I'm around you.

I can't help hoping that someday you'll change your mind,
After every compliment,
Every time you make me smile when I'm down,
When I'm around you.

But I can help comfort you where you're down,
Be there for you,
Make you smile in return,
When I'm around you.

Even if I can't call you mine.

By Aria Segura, 15
