Bad Idea

I can’t date my platonic friend

the one who calls me

and we talk for hours

The one I vent with

when we’ve had a bad day

The one guy whose

face lights up

every time he sees me.


We can’t date,

we’re platonic!

He gives me sage advice

when I have a big decision

He dares tell me don’t

when no one else will

He tells me

of his girlscapades

and listens to

 my manscapades


I think dating

might ruin our friendship

I love him

but I can’t date him.

It’s a bad idea.
