Hold tight

A poem about moving on when you’ve fallen in love with your best friend and you’re trying to hold on to an amicable break up.

I’m shifting gear
I’m taking a turn
I’m moving on
I’ll finally learn
To push you away
To walk into my space
The love I have
Needs its own place

I can’t hold you
I can’t have you
I can’t even say I miss you
But I need you
And I love you
And I remember how I kissed you

Hold tight
And hang on
As I’m changing route
I’m feeling strong
Hold on
As I make my move
I’m afraid you’ll choke me
As I remember our love

I can’t need you
I can’t have you
But I wish that I could like you
I still want you
I still love you
But now it feels like I don’t know you

Hang tight
Hold on
I’m leaving
I’ll be gone
I don’t know how
I can leave you behind
I don’t know if
There’s a friendship to find

I can’t have you
I can’t need you
Sometimes I can’t even be near
But I love you
Always will do
I think, I’ll hold you in these tears

But I’m stepping out
I’m thinking to change
Not repeat my mistakes
But not estranged
I don’t want to lose you
Not everything
But I have to get space
I have to begin

I love you
As a friend
I need to pretend
I miss you
But can’t say it
It’s time for this to end
Hold tight

It’s time
This heart
Is mine

Hold tight

My friend

I’ve been an avid reader and scribbler for years but only recently started thinking about publishing my work.
I’ve always enjoyed writing and have, since 2008, been producing scripts for theatre as my main focus of writing, but always scribbling poems, songs and short stories for fun, and/or catharsis. I’m also a keen sketcher and sketchnoter.
