"The Friend"
I own this stereotype.
Heavy in belly, soft tall demure,
Trying to saint the boxing sinner.
Mother loved, father manly worried,
I wander passion for unrequited state.
The socially unapt gazer, debating intent.
Waiting on the whom,
To confess rapture, for my scenes.

Then it came, love.
But time shorts bliss.
I slowly bleed its demise.
Insecurities constricted affection object.
With every needy utter.
How addictive,
The insecure mind, as it yammers meekly,
"do you still love me".

The dreamer price,
Is the distorted I,
with my grey speckling on my
"want to be cool " chin.
I dream less, and bitter for it.
When friend to lover, then told a mistake,
I leave hungry, Partner Full.

    Awesome poem. I love your style--the density of language and expression, John. A lot of poems I read here seem to forget what makes it poetry, is its very concise, deliberate language. But yours is excellent.

    The insecure mind, something I've dealt with too much. It does yammer much and often, mine still talks to me about my love even after he has died. It's a true sign of humans being flawed, we see flaws even after the end
