Funny how her name is a hot topic at our
Oh! how her eyes shine like the stars when she
shows up unexpectedly at one of our dates.
How she smiles and curls her glossy lips when
you walk up to her.
Darling, i see the way she looks at you.
How your eye balls dance in excitement when
she says your name.
Sweet Jesus! I’d give everything and anything
for you to look at me that way.
Now i am forced to recoil my suspicions and
thoughts because she is just a friend.
Funny how she constantly blows up your cell.
The way your face lights up with a peculiar
enthusiasm in the middle of the day when you
receive a text message from her.
The way your conversation sounds like musical
Complimenting each other like treble and bass.
Completing each other’s sentences.
Damn, i crave a connection like that.
Funny how she is the cause of most of our fights.
How you openly flirt with her on social media.
How smoothly her name rolls out of your mouth.
How your mood yields each time you meet her.
How you feel pumped up each moment you think
How you quickly dismiss my concerns when i
say her name.
“Woman, you’re just paranoid – she is just a friend”.
Brush it off with a shrug, “she’s harmless”.
Funny how i am always caught up in the twilight zone
when we run into her at the store.
The way you embrace her like a lover –and how her
lips shiver as if initiating a kiss.
And i am left to ask; “what just happened here?”
How you run like a three-legged animal to her rescue
when she’s in some sort of trouble.
How she knows all our problems and i know little
How quickly you choose her instead of me.
But she’s just a friend and i am meant to accept that.
Funny that all i do is talk about her.
How my mind is constantly fighting unending battles.
Questioning my integrity amidst such peculiarity.
Forming a chord with his pathetic melody.
Dancing naked in our house like a concubine to his
Convincing myself that i am still his Queen even
when the pangs of reality quickly hasten my confidence
with a bitter truth, and harsh reality in front of me.
She is the woman that got his heart and mind.
And right now, i am just a fool stunting to his lame
Acting dumb and deaf to, “She is just a friend”.
