Her Loser Guy Friend

Her Loser Guy Friend

A Poem by Brjden (Bridge-Den) Crewe
"

Friend zoned and in love. He wants this woman to see him.......

"

 

"Now you're confessing, but I'm still guessing

I've been your fool for so, so long......."

            - Huey Lewis & The News,  "If This is It"

 

Her Loser Guy Friend

 

 by Bridgey "You'reLikeMyLittleBrother" Crewe

 

 

 

I'm in love with someone

who's ridiculously blind

Not Stevie Wonder-like

Though sometimes I really wonder,

might she need a cane & canine

Cause I can't explain why from all these signs

and blinking turn signals down

this ONE WAY street of mine...

my street, she still forgoes

 

I'm in love with my best friend

 

And lord knows that with my intentions when mixed

With possibly destroying our friendship

I would need some holy intervention

That's extraordinarily divine

The kind that would open her eyes up to me understanding that

 All we all really want, is to be happy!

 

To find someone who can kiss our morning face when we are barely awake, with developing crow’s feet, dry skin and hair going in all directions, snoring and morning breathe resembling road kill on a hot intersection, and with our barely open, blood-shot and terribly swollen eyes, to find someone who can look into those eyes, and with genuine love, and personal pride...

still KISS US

 

 

I'm staring that type of understanding directly at her

But she's not even facing us

So face it, I must accept that I'm just....

Her Loser Guy Friend

The non-threatening, go-to-man

Resident of her friend zone

The male perspective adviser to her

When she's dealing with Mr. Wrong


The broad shouldered pillow,  

 Pathetic, platonic love,

The recipient of the oh so dreaded

                    "Separated pelvic hug"


The comforter, the doormat

The place-holder for another,

Dick-less omega

who's good enough to love

But not as a lover

 

I'm the amazing safe haven

For her precious feelings to stay in,  

The 'sleep in the same bed

gentleman lame'

Who wants her

but she doesn't feel the same

 

When she gives Mr. Wrong

The heart that should be mine

I'm right there

 

When Mr. Wrong breaks that heart

For the millionth time

I'm right there

 
When those so called friends of hers

Were whispering rumors

I was right there

 

When she called to tell me her father

Developed an inoperable tumor

I was right there

 

I was there for the pearly white smiles

And I was there for the pouty lip frowns

And as far as I'm concerned,

I will co-pilot all of her ups and downs

 

I just wish her sexual vision of me

was 20/20


She so blind, it's asinine really,

But I'm willing to patiently wait

And even if at the end of the

World's calendar dates and

My undying love never reciprocates...

 

I will be the Bestest Loser Guy Friend she's ever had!

 

I'm not her friend because

               I'm in love with her

I'm her Loser Guy Friend

    Simply because I love her

 

I just wish she could see me

Author's Note

Brjden (Bridge-Den) Crewe
This is a prequel to "I Can See Her(Punch Drunk Love)". I'm not sure as to why how it came about, but I think this is me(and in Punch Drunk) probably at the deepest part of myself.

I get you here, after all I am the Queen of the friend zone...wanna be my King?....lol
I really like this Bridge you cooked this one nicely. I felt the tug of war in the poem.
The desire to talk to her for hours, to be there for her, to hold her as more then a
friend. Rather then comforting her as you both fall asleep and she's awoken the next
morning by a phone call from her boyfriend. All this is happening while your praying she
sees that your staring at her a bit longer then usual, touching her more and she's so
blind to the fact that you want her......and I get it so nice Bridge can I steal your line right
quick?...............ENTER THE LIBRARY!!!

This is amazing, who hasn't been that guy friend? It echoes some deep not quite forgotten thoughts in my mind and forces me to revisit places and feelings Id thought long dead and gone. Powerful stuff.

Thank you Ms. Irene.
i love the way you open each poem with a relative quote ... i would have never thought words spoken would ever have any relation to a poem so amazing ... unfortunately many females are caught up with the bad boy type, the type to break their hearts that sometimes they miss out on the one person who actually cares about them ... but to be a true friend is to truly love that person no matter what

I can find at least one little tiny microscopic flaw in any writing, but you are the only exception to that. This is funny and a bit sad, but it's still fantastic. Not only can guys, obviously, relate to this, but girls feel the same way. Both sexes are just as blind when it comes down to it [: But we're human. Anyway, once again, you've amazed me.

Absolutely beautiful and quite comical. Sometimes love is venomous to a friendship...yet a friendship is made of love...hmmm. Excellent read! I mainly enjoy reading your pieces because they exude originality and bully you to read them to the end. That is the sign of a true writer. Keep exercising your gift!

...and with that, I'm right back to my most frustrated days of high school and college. I don't think anyone ever forgets the pain and frustration of being the "best friend." You're playing a role in secret and it's all a lie - a lie to the one you love, no less!
