Treasure Island

Kelsea Osterman


FWB


I never thought you could hurt me.
I thought I closed the iron gates after the last one left.
But yet again you proved me wrong.
Ha silly me.
See I thought you wanted to just be friends.
And then we you said let's be 'Friends'.
I was like how can I pass up this chance.
It was a chance for me to prove to you I was better than
All of the other girls.
So we both agreed 'Just friends'
We also agreed 'No strings attached'
And see that's where made our first mistake.
Because, I have a dirty little secret.
See when I made that promise,
I broke it right away.
That's right I broke the golden rule.
Ya see I didn't just want to be friends.
I wanted strings to be attached.
I wanted there to be a you, a me, and an us.
Okay let me spell this out for you.
You plus me equals a relationship.
That's right say it with me, re-la-tion-ship.
You know boyfriend girlfriend kind of thing.
You hold my hand I giggle and laugh to all my girlfriends.
That's what I wanted from the very beginning.
A, you, plus a me equation.
But all you wanted was a
You, plus, me, equals, a good time in bed.
Which don't get me wrong was a good thing.
But it wasn't even for me.
And as we continued down this 'Friend' path.
I started to wonder.
Did you really like me at all?
Did you talk about me to your friends?
Do you smile when you get a text from me.
Cause I know I like you.
I like you a lot more than I should.
I do talk about you.
A lot.
And I smile every time my phone goes off,
Hoping it's from you.
And I get sad when it's not.
So I guess the main point of all this blabbering,
Is to tell you.
I don't want this
You plus me equals 'Friends'
Anymore.
What I really want is a,
You plus me equals a relationship.
So now that I've broken all the rules.
Let's go at it again.

    I like this piece of work. It gets at the heart of the matter. Relationships and boundaries. I have found,
    If it's too good to be true, it probably is. (Report) Reply

    Your poem is very honest and truthful about how you feel a relationship should be for you. I like how you depict the whole relationship and what you want from it. You deserve to be loved for yourself alone. (Report) Reply

    Not bad at all... It shows how egocentric people can be. Also, it depicts the heart of man. It's hard to know how another feels in his/her heart for us. Nice read...keep writing dear. However, you may have to read again and make corrections, like this line: And then we you said let's be 'Friends'(sic) . I think the 'we' is meant to be 'when'.
    Welldone. (Report) Reply

    Very emotional read, not sure if it's fiction or factual but either way you did a good job bringing emotions to the surface that we all experience at one time or another. (Report) Reply

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
