December 14

“My lover”
Is inaccurate
a teen idol.
“My boo”
Is ridiculous
“The man I love”

“Best friend”
Understates it
Seen as hyperbole
Too old-fashioned
Could be Stephanie

Word choice is important
To capture who you are.
Offered options fall quite flat-
An unseen wishing star.

“The man I’m waiting for”
Like a soldier
Gone off to war
Getting letters from his girl
Full of romance and pure joy

Waiting to see you
When the battle’s done
Nothing certain
Except the feeling
That I want my “Doughboy.”
