The Fallback Girl

The Fallback Girl short poem

Photo by Fey Ilyas

So you play the Friend Card,
Holder accepts no responsibility,
So do you feel better?
Do you feel friend-worthy?
Treating me as an option,
Does it stoke your ego, honey?
Keeping me in your back pocket,
For when the day is rainy?
Let’s cut to the chase,
We are together or apart on your term,
It’s always all about your comfort zone,
Frankly, you’re such a pain in the bum.
Maybe you are wonderful,
But Love, I’m not your fallback girl,
The slate’s not wiped clean,
So call someone who is available.
