aroace.ro Posted October 20, 2021 Share Posted October 20, 2021 I wrote a poem about my feelings for my best friend, now far away, and wanted to see what you think about it. I know it's not the best poetry you'll ever read, but still, it's a reflection of my aro experience. I didn't show it to her yet, and I doubt I ever will, I don't want to freak her out. Anyway, hope you'll like it. The love of an aroace Remember when I said you are the light of my life Maybe you thought I was exagerating But then why am I incapable of forgetting The way I felt each time you touched me with your kindness? I felt seen, I felt safe I felt capable and free Free to cry, free to smile Free to laugh and love You were always able to say what you think While still being kind, wow, what a skill But most importantly, you helped me Love myself like you love me But I don't think you understand the extent of my love I would do anything, hell, even die for you You know, if I could fall in love It would have been with you But I can't, so relax, don't get scared I wasn't jealous of your boyfriend Being important to you, feeling loved By you was all that I ever wanted What you gave me was more than I could ever ask for A hug, a helping hand, all your support and love I never needed anything else; friends are all I live for But from you I learned how it feels to truly love I miss you, more than I like to admit I feel a hole in my soul when you don't answer me I was really afraid that it would come to this That I'd depend on you while you won't have time for me But that's okay, really, don't worry about me I'm readapting to my country, to my family I just wanted to tell you what I didn't then know Best friends felt too little to describe our bond When I had to let you go, I thought my heart might break I wasn't prepared to not have you around You, the person closest to my heart I loved you in a way you wouldn't understand Anyways, what can I do? I will just continue loving you Like only an aroace can do There's nothing I would change in my relationship with you I just wish I knew it sooner I just wish I could have told you I just wish it wouldn't scare you And that we could remain the same, forever But now you're far away, it's hard to even be a friend And so, just know you'll always be in my heart In there you have your own, huge compartment. I love you, too much -your aroace best friend. 8 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
