I Need to Try Harder

by lost

We're friends still.

We're friends right now, We've been friends for a quite a while.

We talk, but not much.

I find myself hoping each day you'll talk to me. What I would do to see you smile.

I watch you talk to everyone else

And I realize that although we're friends, you have better friends than me. Several of them. To you, I'm just one flower in a beautiful garden.

I realize we're friends, we've always been friends

But that's all we'll ever be.

I know that you don't love me

My heart keeps breaking when I realize you don't care for me the way I care for you.

I've tried countless time to end this

I've tried to get over you. I stopped watching you talk to other people. I stopped caring. This time, I believed I had finally won.

But then I look at you.

Not just a glance, but I watch you, I watch you talk to your friends. I watch you smile at them as if they're giving you the world.

And then I talk to you.

I couldn't help it.

And you smile.

Yes, you smile at me. Before I know what's happening, something awakens inside me. I feel within me a feeling I haven't felt in months. A feeling that you last made me feel.

There's no way I'm over you.

It's impossible to get over you.

This is beautifully written. The sentiment are raw and pure. You have described a that is common to your age group. I have this to offer to you. Love them all. Whether it is returned is unimportant. What is important is that you have experienced love. You fall in love with the person the first time. The second time and thereafter you fall in love with love.
