G-Good Intentions

Love seems to be a recurring theme in my poetry. Maybe, it's because it's a recurring theme in life. I always say that “love is all about where you feel it and how you feel it,” which makes it seem that love is more of a feeling and less of an action (ie to make love). It could be both though, I think.

Love is very tricky. Sometimes, people feel love for a person who doesn't love them back. Every other post I see on Reddit has to do with the 'friend zone' where guys (mostly) have to settle for friendship. They either didn't admit to their feelings at the right time or they got rejected. Most men describe it as the worst place to be, something like a hell on Earth. Must be pretty awful for the guy.

But, would it be any less or more awful if a woman became friendzoned? What if this girl could never force herself to confess? I was thinking, maybe since I'm a girl and I've felt love before... what if I wrote a collection of poems for the friendzoned women out there?

Call it something like Rose Colored Lenses; Jaded Prescription. My intentions are good. I'm not aiming to write about the injustice of the situation, or the cruelty of being friend zoned. I just want to write a narrative-based collection. Just as an iea as to what a girl with a one-sided love feels. Wish me luck.


  1. I've been friendzoned. Been head over snatch with a guy who just wasn't interested in me "in that way." Tried desperately to win him over through my willingness to "be there" for him through thick and thin... never worked.

    Now, a few years later - I wouldn't have him tied up with a bow. I look at him and think, and while I don't despise myself for how I felt, earlier, am really, really glad "things" didn't work out between us. I have no desire to ever be more than friends, any more.

    I do wish you luck with your poems on the subject.

    1. Thank you. Considering that I just finished drafting the poems this morning, I'm glad you wished me luck!

      Still, being friendzoned, stinks.
