I know who you are, we always talk. You tell me everything. I hide your secrets. You raise my hopes, making me feel that a chance exists. I play along. I let you cry on my shoulder. I let you use me, I let you abuse me. I drop my life for yours. You come to me when the world is tough. I am your rock...Yet inside I cry. I watch you flourish. While I work the sidelines. Finally I make my move. I pour out my heart. Then i hold open my hand and a rose appears, grown through love. You smile and kiss my cheek. "Thank you" you reply with a smile. I go to hug you but before I can you turn. I watch you walk away. You hand it to another man. I watch you embrace him. A simple kiss. I watch the rose die in his hand I prepare myself to pick you up when you fall. I reopen my hand and watch a new rose appear. I close my hand around it and close my eyes. I smile. I wish you guys the best of luck. I go back to the sidelines and wait. I wait for you and i hold you and I keep you strong. Even though I’m never your choice I am always there. Throughout your entire life. My devotion never dies. Why would a man possibly go through this for nothing...Because I’m the guy who cares...

Thank you so much. :) I'm glad that you feel and see that way with my writings. I try to get the reader involved with it and I'm very happy that it worked for you. And I consider my writing a little more of "poetic stories" because not all of it is necessarily a fiction, non-fiction, nor poetry as it blends it all together into a single literary work. I'm glad you noticed that and enjpyed it.

Is it poetry? Or is it prose? I can't tell, and I like that about it. Glancing over a couple of your other poems (I'll read them in-depth in a few moments), that seems to be a constant with your style; your fiction is as (for lack of a better word) poetic as your poetry. It's lovely. I feel a little intrusive talking about the personal subject matter here, so I'll keep this short. This perspective is heartbreaking. With my being a girl, I've never seen this side of things, but after reading your piece I feel like I have. Not just because I can personally relate to the situation, but also because your words are so vivid. Not only do I feel for you, I feel -with- you. That can be a hard thing to do with writing, inspiring empathy in the reader. Very well done.
