A sideways glance and a wink;
Oh, how confused I am.
One look is all it takes.
But we’ve been friends for years
Your inner monologue says.
There is no way
But her strength and resilience are what attracts you.
Intimidated at first, but now you see the truth.
It takes a while but she lets you in; only drawing you closer.
After all, the foundation is layered with friendship.
Do not be fooled; there is no love in this
Or is there?
No, no love.
Just stunning admiration.
Yet when she touches your hand, you could see it.
The future; oh so bright.
No, no love
Only attractive strength.
Oh, how confused you are.
