It pains me at times that I have deliberated over whether a friend can be a lover I’ve had lovers who were friends but we were lovers first…. then a moment arises the need for a lover becomes a thirst Is it fair? that you demand more your friend from the picture you drew? sadness and loneliness so they offer more to you of themselves if you accept their offer can you turn back the clock mistakes may slip for after a friend becomes a lover your knowledge of each other is more intimate flicking an emotional switch so you no longer react as of late your friend has gone your lover is here things now become more intricate when a relationship ends it invariably sours communication is broken you have lost your friend However….. to further the debate if your friend is your soul mate then as your lover is it not deliberated that your soul mate can be your lover they know the inner you not the intimate first they can read you know your thoughts understand you at best So how do we distinguish between who is a friend a lover and a soul mate can they be defined? or do we combine and manipulate how do we know if a friend can be a lover as a lover can be a friend? Or do we confuse the two…..
