For a Friend

Glances across a crowded room
A smile threatens to break through
Always aware of the other’s position
But unsure, doubtful
Should I say hello?
Who will take those steps forward?
Making moves across the room
Perhaps fear keeps us paralysed
Always waiting
for the other to be bold
Courageous
Spoken words, so difficult to form
Should I ask? Or leave it unspoken?
Confusion, uncertainty
Can we just be friends?
We crossed the line
Can we step back?
Difficult, and awkward
But with friend’s support
Its possible, in love

Written in the moment, for a friend – May 2017
