Her Best Friend Poem by Ruby Honeytip

Her Best Friend

Rating: 5.0
 


He left a message on her voicemail
She saved it and she listens
She listens and burns.
She is a fool
Such a fool!

An innocent knee
Pressed against hers
Sets her alight where they touch
She is a fool
Such a fool

She listens to his beautiful words,
And lets them flow to the middle of her heart,
As she stares at the base of his throat.
She is a fool,
Such a fool

As soon as he leaves her
She feels a universe of hidden sentiments
Descend upon her tongue
She is a fool,
Because...because....

She shares him with so many just like her,
And she's the easy target amongst them all.
Alas...he'll have her gentle heart forever,
Because she is a fool
Only a fool.

Annoying isn't it that they can have control over a bit of your heart! I connect with all of your poems! And the lines in this one follow suit! Thank you!

40 oz to Freedom? Sublime?

this is excellent, it has a song-lyric quality to it which i really enjoyed. it reminds me of the song by The Descendants that Sublime covered, called Hope. You managed to convey the same emotion with simple observations that a lot of poets would OVER-write to convey. great! :)
