He knocked once, twice, three times, then four
But I thought it wasn't time for me to let him through the door.
He would have to pass some tests, and then he'd have to wait
For it wasn't time, I thought, for me to let him through the gate.
I roamed the place to find competition for the knocking
I found one very soon but something gave me a shocking
For when I listened to hear the knocking two in competition
I heard not a knocking two but a knocking one.
You see, knocker one had gone to knock another door
He told me that he had success and wanted me no more
But then I realized I wanted him to be mine
He was the one knocking first, now it was my time.
Very soon I recognized I wasn't going to get him back
The second knocker did his best to get me back on track
So, because the first knocker didn't really take the test
I decided that I had to settle for second best
It seemed the second knocker had seen my hesitation
And so he got up one day and made a harsh decision
Remember in the beginning I had two knockers
Well both of them left me now, one behind the other.
We are just friends now and always will be
There will be no 'us' just a 'him' and a 'me'
Yes he's cute, and he's hot and smiles so beautifully
But still, a friend is all he is to me.
We understand each other, he knows a friend is all he is to me
Though we kiss, we hug and seem so togetherly
Sometimes it seems, we were always meant to be
But still, a friend is all he is to me.
"He's not just your friend", my friends keep telling me
"He means more to you than you care to see"
But still, I fought it, just like Bruce Lee
For we only wanted to be friends......or do we?
Matters of the Heart
I think I really like him, I guess I really do
Yet I'm the one who stopping both our dreams from coming through
We both want to be together, we want to be more than friends
But I think if we give in, very soon it will all end.
I told myself I couldn't do the girlfriend kind of thing
I would love him too much I'd probably treat him like a king
I fear, just like all the relationships that I have seen
He'll eventually dump me to the side and find another queen.
If this should happen I would probably die of humiliation
It would be announced I died from 'love suffocation'
This is not the type of person I want myself to be
So we will just be friends for now then I will wait and see.
This poet thinks this girl is going to get a broken heart
For and end will come to something that she thought did not start
You see, what she should have done was take her friend's advice
Then if love was like a cake, she could have herself a slice.
Wake Up Call
In my life, there are a series of different boys
My friends and I talk about all the joys
You see, what I've been doing is, trying to pretend
That each of these boys is just my friend
First of all, I dislike 'K'ites and 'C'lays
But I pass them on many a day
If you don't know this then you must be a fool
Because you must know my reference is meant to be a school
I tried to find a lot of things that could 'fix it'
Then I find who I thought was a perfect fit
It turns out he had a girl for a best friend
and with each other, a lot of time they spend
I left him once to teach him a lesson
I think, in disguise, this was actually a blessing
For what I did that very blessed day
Gave me more insight into his ways
It happened that he started to like a girl he never met
In defense, he threatened both my friends and me to death
But when he finally met her, he saw through her disguise
So he called me up immediately to apologize.
I didn't care about that cause I met another guy
Now I wish I didn't, and I will tell you why
I was just about to take this guy and play him for a fool
When i found out both their other girls attended my school
I found out about them cause they knew about me too
I called my friends up while contemplating what to do
But the other day, immediately as I walked through the gate
I was warned by one of them to set my priorities straight
Probably you are laughing but this is not a joke
It is good I am not eating, or else I'd probably choke
I got my older brother just to come and clear my name
these girls may hate me, let them know, I hate them just the same.
Let me see who knows who these poems are about.
