    No strings attached was the deal, and we both thought it’d be so simple

    My heart is strong, I can handle this, and it won’t even make a dimple

    We’ll laugh and play and have some fun, we won’t dare get attached

    But as time passed and feelings grew we realized what our lives lacked


    The plan was to be very subtle with meetings being very few

    Sometimes going days without speaking, oh sure, this we can do

    We will walk around and put on a front as if everything’s the same

    But that was before all the of the emotion before all of the feelings came


    We’ll pretend that we are only friends, of those you are my best

    I think of you first each day and much more often than the rest

    We will have to continue this charade until the time is right

    Until that fateful day has come when we can slip off into the night


    How wonderful life will be again how deeply we will live

    Because I know to each other, we both have so much to give

    We started looking to the future we started making plans

    To have gone so fast it seems so slow, it’s the waiting I can hardly stand


    I can not wait until that night when together we will lay

    Instead of it being just hours, my whole life you will stay

    For now you have become my world you are my everything

    Finally my heart is free; it’s been cut loose, there are no strings

    Beautifully written with so much emotion. I've been there before and we all think its cool when our hearts aren't involved. We all believe we have control of our hearts but we don't. Not really. Great job.

    Poetry is what gets lost in translation.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
