I Would Rather Be Your Friend by Yamikani Jamali Hassan

Yamikani Jamali Hassan | April 9th, 2024 | poetry | No Comments


I am green with envy
As a love purse makes my heart heavy.
I love my lips sealed
And not to be lost in the intensity of the split-second

Love is the apple of discord
To mystify, daze, confound,
And able to cease the heart
From being the apple of the eye

I won’t like us as doves
I would rather see us as thick as thieves
So let’s be friends and not lovers
To avoid the future stigmatizing us ex lovers
