give me those freckles,
glazing your pale skin, like your kisses on my face
give me those lips,
torn and bloody from the anxiety-ridden antics of your own brain
give me those smiles,
all too friendly and forgiving
something i could only hope is for me
give me that strength,
blinking back tears behind ill-fitting glasses
give me your love,
and i promise that one day i will utter the sacred words myself

but until those days,
we open the door
and shed light on the cobwebs in our closets
and you are just another friend
to me.

I was in love with this girl who could do no wrong in my eyes. We were best friends and she knew that I liked her and vice versa, but we never said anything because we were afraid of what would happen.
