Quite Close

Lovers . . . and friends!
That's, how it begins.
Friends, . . . and lovers!
Starts, like all the others.
And then!
I'm, close, but not quite.
Her, mister right.
Thoughts, keep me awake.
Ask, first not take.
Feelings, I don't fake.
Who, I am I am and I . . .
Love, myself but I . . .
Sometimes cry . . .
Not again!
Still, close but not quite.
Someday, someone might
know ME, and stay . . .
Work, and play . . .
Love, and not throw me away.
No more!
You're, close but not quite.
My, tarnished knight.
Friends, . . . and lovers!
Nothing, like the others.
Lovers, . . . and friends!
This never ends . . .
