Lessons in life

A Poem by Jong Schrijver
"

Trying to kind of tell a story in a poem

"

Poor Peter Lester experiencing an obstacle in life

What is he to do, he has feelings for two girls.

He wishes he could have them both as his wives

But he knows in his heart he has to make a choice.

 

Peter decided to ask his friend Frank for advice

But he didn't know that Frank was troubled too.

Frank liked Judy but she despised every guy

Becuase she was used, abused, and cheated.

 

Frank had gone to Judy's best friend Sarah

To seek advice as to how to get her love.

But Sarah had failed to mention one fact to him.

They had a falling out and don't talk any more.

 

Sarah felt alone without a best friend to talk to

So she went out into the world to find a new friend.

She met a girl named Sam who liked the same things.

And they talked and talked and damn they never stop.

 

She said she likes this guy, and she thinks he likes her

And Sarah admitted she was in the same situation.

So they decided that they would each go to that guy

And tell them how they feel and hope that they felt the same.

 

When Sarah went to the house of the man she liked

She noticed there was more than one car outside.

She saw a woman's silhouette in the window

And she appeared to be kissing the man she liked.

 

She went home to cry and she had to call Sam.

Sam picked up but she said she couldn't talk

Because her and her man had just hit it off

And before she hung up she heard her say Peter.

 

Sarah realized that Sam was the woman inside that house

And now she felt betrayed by her new best friend.

Sarah wanted no more of Sam and she picked up the phone.

She dialed a number, that she used to call everyday.

 

She called Judy and told her she missed her so much.

She wanted to be back to the way it used to be.

And Judy agreed and they spent the night talking.

And Sarah mentioned Frank's name to Judy.

 

Judy called Frank and they set up a date.

They had a good time and wanted another.

And Frank talked to his friend Peter and,

Helped him decide that Sarah was the one for him.

 

So Peter called Sarah and told her how he felt

When he learned that she saw what had happened.

He apologized to her and said it was nothing.

That Sam had kissed him, but he pulled away.

 

So needless to say Sarah didn't talk to Sam again

But she ended up with Peter, and they're so happy.

And her best friend Judy married Frank

It was a beautiful wedding, much nicer than the divorce.

This is great. I can't believe this wasn't inspired by anything. I mean...I believe you, but...you know. This could maybe be a song. It definitely tells an interesting story. Maybe you could write a rhyming version and you and Shayna could collaborate on it or something. I don't know, I'm just thinking out loud. But this is a great poem. It flows nicely, and it's complex but not confusing. Nice job!

P.S.: I like the ending.

I like this piece very much because of the ending.

I'm just getting around to read requests, or some of them... I like this. You did what you wanted to do, a story within a poem. I have no idea what everyone else is talking about... you know, where the story came from. It's bothering me trying to figure it out now... oh well. Anyway, good piece, love how the s**t of the story was named Sam... haha if that was my real name I'd be worried. And the last line made me laugh, "it was a beautiful wedding, much nicer than the divorce." And now for more read requests.
