Friends Or more


Is it how you smile at me
Or your gentle touch?
Is it you confiding in me
Implying I mean so much

I wish you’d be upfront
How you feel about me
I’m hopeless at reading signs
Friends or more, are we?

    I know what you mean. It would be so much simpler for people to wear labels on their foreheads saying ‘I love you, just to be clear.’ 😀 Nice poem, PB!
