"It's better to burn out than to fade away..." -Kurt Cobain

I go up so high sometimes,

Just to again fall so low.

He picks me up and I feel the sky.

And when I'm about to fly, that's when he lets me go.

Broken arm, broken heart.

Broken tears from broken eyes.

He knows that hugs are not enough,

Does he know my smile's a lie?

I jump up and try to fly again,

But I need his help and love.

He doesn't feel what I feel,

He doesn't have a hand I trust.

I have a crush on my best friend. The poem is about how hard it is to still maintain a friendship when all you want to do is just kiss them.
