A fool at my age is what???

Khama kissed me in the spring,
Laiman in the fall,
But Michael only looked at me
And never kissed at all.

Khama's kiss was lost in jest,
Laiman's lost in play,
But the kiss in Michael's eyes
Haunts me night and day.



Adapted from Sara Teasdale's(1884-1933)
The look.



I shouldn't let him hold my hand, even if I can't cross the NNPC road alone.
I souldn't let him hug me goodnight, even if it helps me sleep better.
I shouldn't let him kiss me, even if I say to myself that we're just fooling around.
I shouldn't let him...
darn! what am I going to do???

I'm in love with the love of my life...
I shouldn't let him confuse me.
We've been friends since forever, I can't just walk away!

What do I do now?
my best friend wants to ruin the best thing that's ever happened to me...


I love him...
but what I feel for my sweetness cannot be compared to our silly friendship...
I should stay away from him
but he's everywhere!
darn! what am I going to do???

Very Simple...Talk or fade...a friendship with a dude that doesnt respect your wishes and feelings is no friendship at all...regardless of how he feels for u...word

I'm going to play the devil's advocate here and say: Enjoy! Life is sweet!
Then I'm going to play the wise, all-knowing uncle and say: Stop it before things blow up in your face.
Then I'm going to be the typical guy and say:Lucky friend! Ol' boy, chop knuckle...
Then I'm going to just be me and sigh... Got my own female issues... This life sef...

Best male friends always miss the road somewhere..

but the problem here is not the best friend...me thinks its you..

me thinks this feelings are reciprocated else you would be laughing out loud!!!
