Always the bridesmaid, never the groom

Always the bridesmaid, never the groom
Why do nice guy's, finish last, role I assume?
Why do I nourish, for years their laughter
Care for their tastes, ear for their chatter?
And why, at the altar, alternatives step-in
To usurp my own, happy ending in making?

Always the bridesmaid, never the groom
My friends concur, I script my doom.
They say, "You are awfully nice, to ready to please
But to titilate their amorous self, you need to tease.
You can endear them, my friend, only through your flaws
Active persuasion, relentless avowals, even stone thaws."

Always the bridesmaid, never the groom
When will, my true love, come to bloom?
When will my muse, marry my composition
Fill me with lust, no scruples on imagination?
When will my existance, my greatest triumph assume
My jealous "ex-es" be bridesmaids, myself be the groom?

bridesmaid???

I concur with maria here - this use of the word bridesmaid is definitely misleading, or…er…leading differently… and seems to be speaking of the love that dare not speak its own name.
Man, if a shrink ever got his/her hands on this poem!

Male bridesmaid, it is!

“Maria, the “bridesmaid” is the right word, for the guy is “brides best friend”…. though as you pointed out, maybe I made an unintentional pun there, and like Rumi’s poetry, the gay people will call it their own…. a poem means whatever it means to a reader:)!”

Sure, Mr.Poet,

Point well-taken! And male bridesmaid, it is! (*male bridesmaid..that is cute:-)

And you are absolutely right about whatever the poem means to the reader.

Brokeback bridesmaid? -for Vivek

“Always the bridesmaid, never the groom
When will, my true love, come to bloom?”

No offense Vivek,

But, shouldn’t it be…”Always the ‘best man’, never the groom”??
(Or is this a Brokeback mountain sort of- wedding?!)

“even stone thaws” ?? … i’ll just change a word in a line I just wrote as a comment to anaz’s blog, and say - the power of delusional thinking knows no bounds Sticking out tongue
