Pillars of Rejection (4)

Okay. About the “friendzone”:
First, the terms unfortunate —
For it implies that friends are
Something terrible to get.

But I think I see well enough
What’s being gotten at —
It is about rejection,
Sometimes painful ones, at that.

So now, no matter who you are
It’s tough (you know it’s true!)
When you desire someone who
Does not desire you

And since rejection’s painful
One will say, “well let’s be friends.”
The other thinks, “this hurts too much.
I guess here’s where this ends.”

Don’t tell someone that you don’t want
They’re wrong for wanting you:
And if you are the rejectee
Might want to think this through —

Most important: don’t lash back.
It’s wrong to behave such:
Like you were never told when young
There’s stuff that you can’t touch.

Love’s freely given, or not there.
To deal with, takes some balls:
If you want to control folks, then
Go home
And play
With dolls
