Imaginary Friend

Enough
histrionics;
confusing tendency
to conflate real with imagined.
I wish I could be enough for your days,
but failing exclusivity,
I guess I’ll learn to share
if home base is
enough.

  2. This reminds me of my oldest daughter's imaginary friend, and how I would have to spend hours listening to her tell me all the things he had said and done that day. Of course, now she's top of her class in second year Corporate Communications...

  5. I read a totally other meaning to this - to me, it spoke of 'an other woman' in a relationship...

  7. I went straight to the poem before looking at the title ... I also thought of someone in an 'open relationship.' Enjoyed the write.

  8. I love this, Marian, especially the 4- and 5-syllable words used in this form's tight syllable count! "Histrionics" might tend to rule out "exclusivity" in many a relationship, real or imagined. LOL
