“Paradox”

Published October 16, 2011 by Susan Woodward

It hurts to be in love with a friend,

Albeit a friend with special privileges.

All the ingredients are there

Including the lemon that curdles the cream—

Fear.

The sweetness of what I feel is

Soured by the

Paradox of spoiling a friendship with love.
