dare to keep.

this is not a tragic love story.
and this is not “could’ve been”,
“should’ve been”, would’ve been”.

this is not a question or a quandary.
and this is not a case of
“unrequited”, “disassociated”.

the reason they call it a best friend
is because there is only one.
you remain my best friend
and the only one,
i dare to keep.

this is not a high school fancy,
and this is not a summer fling,
Paris dream, lust-fuelled wandering.

this is not a dalliance i’ll forget.
and this is not just life experience,
lessons learnt, character strengthened.

the reason they call it a best friend
is because there is only one.
you remain my best friend
and the only one,
i dare to keep.

if you dare.
to keep me.
i dare.
to keep.

if you dare.
to keep me.
i dare.
to keep.

the reason they call it a best friend
is because there is only one.
you remain my best friend
and the only one,
i dare to keep.
