I wish i could get over
This problem bothering me
It has to do with a friend of mine
And what will come to be

You see i think I said wrong words
Except I do not know
Because of my bad memory
The words are as blank as snow

So now I tell the problem
Though I did not mean what i said
My friend no longer trust me
and for that I am sad

My friend has the right to be mad
But if only he let me explain
That if he told me what i said
I could make things right again

I don't remember what I said
But here's the funny thing
I remember all the times we shared
But those wrong words don't ring

I hope I one day read this
To my friend I held so dear
I hope he understands that
Those words were a nasty smear

yeah, it was a bit too structured, I mean, i'm partisal to free-verse, but sometimes I do stuff that's really structured.
