At first you were chameleon like,
You blended into walls,
Watched all of our laughter and overheard our calls.
Soon you wern't a shadow,
I hoped that I could tame,
And slowly did you creep out, no longer just a name.
My best friends younger sibling,
A no-go zone indeed,
But more and more increasingly I dreamt to do the deed,
You spoke a little louder, as time passed so much more,
You joked and played, I stayed and stayed,
Not often left the door.
The constance of my visits in which I spent the nights,
Made seeing you a regular, you seeing all my blights.
You loved me for just being me, of that much I am sure.
And I loved you but knowingly at my heart you tore,
For we both knew a love like this had never yet occured,
To either one of us so that our speech would ever slur!
A glance across the kitchen, a twinkle in your eye,
Your feet resting upon mine, a warm and gentle sigh,
We spoke of ghosts and magic, things others we'd not tell,
Confiding all our secrets and sharing the same shell,
But yet there was a problem, a tragic feeling grew,
For I as well as you knew that our colours would turn blue,
You were the best friends sibling, I had fallen hard and fast,
Was I a fool to love you? And think it just might last?
If we we're ever founded, the consequence would kill,
Not literally but figuratively yet was it worth the thrill?
Of course to me it wasn't just a crush or just a phase,
You never said you loved me but you set my heart ablaze.
I miss you now i've travelled, onto another place,
And you with new commitments and obstacles to face,
I never told you either but my look i'm sure you knew,
And blushed a little always, at the very sight of you,
My heart was yours forever, from the cradle to the grave,
Your name however ordinary keeps me like a slave,
Asleep inside my dreamworld, we are eternal there,
A love that's not forbidden and not a sign of care.
When I go to bed each night I cry a silver tear,
And will do many more times, bruised from year to year.
Good luck in life my soul mate, keep a peice of me with you,
Don't worry you are with me, in everything I do.
