A Poem by sinNsincerity


I’m too obsessed,

So I bite my tongue

Because it may lead into

The depths of  hopelessness.

It’s easy to assist,

But I’m too intimate to

Just be friends.

Of course we can be,

But that’ll be my death


I want you to

have it all.

Not just a piece of me.

I want to create a Love

Dynasty that’ll leave you

delighted like lions rolling around

in dandelions.

It all or nothing with the narrator here. No half-measures. It an intensity that could scare all but the most determined so that makes the search even harder - the options are much narrower for hearts that want to fall quickly and wholly into love. The romanticised notion of 'The One' is probably at work here. Believeing in movies and songs and yes even poems help set us up for the great disappointment
The final lasting image of the lions is wonderful, Sin.
Good write my friend.

You're welcome Sin. :)


I really like it. Especially:

But I’m too intimate to
Just be friends.
Of course we can be,
But that’ll be my death

I felt like I could relate to that. It's amazing. Keep it up.

so relateable ...anyone on that "love road" has this experience ..i agree completely .."we can not be friends" ;( great title and marvelous closing lines ..i love the lions and dandelions ..such a vivid image they are ...as fierce as lions can be they do roll and play in the tall grasses of the Serengeti ... (not that i have been there physically) when dandelions replace the grass it is a delightful scene ...very much enjoyed this rather heart wrenching poem ... nice job says i!

images are lasting and telling
inside the words here.
Nice metaphors with built-in
structures to captivate on.

It is kinda scary to give oneself fully. Thinking about it makes me cringe. If one is rejected... the whole self is worth... less than nothing. But it was beautifully written as always.

I liked how this poem seemed to flow and then jump. The end two lines are my favorite. Very nice!
