How Can a Friend A Lover Be??? #poetry #romance

How can a friend a lover be?

She looks through water stained glass

For were he a lover

would he sweat free

appealing to the feminine me?

**

Or if he a friend

 silly look of the rest

he would laugh aghast at romance

“folly aha I like you too much to ply

sweet sickly speech, words I detest”

***

and why would I seek

a man who is soft

love carries his heart away

why would I not be swept by a man

who with his rapier valiantly plays

***

For love in a woman

tears hearts to shreds

barren in what she’d  portray

why can they not be friends such as men

and love hotly in bed the next day
