Best Man

Ring, ring goes my telephone,
I move to the front door of the house
I rent to own 
I am moving slow,
stoned,
alone, 
I stroll,
miserable!!!

The call came a few hours before 
from a dear friend of mine 
forewarning me of the grime,
dirty shards ripping, crippling my inner core.

I saw them together at the grocery store.
Discombobulated, my shirt smells of pine,
weighted, my heart begins to whine,
My best man, my girl. A romance so hard to ignore.

    Mr JP, This poem makes me sad because you saw your best man and girl together at the grocery store. I can't imagine a girl choosing someone else. Wonderful poem. Scarlett
