When I first read this poem as a reader, I have to say that I was very impressed. It's easy to find on the internet quite a bit of slack on men and women when it comes to being put into the infamous 'friendzone.' While I can say that I can not vouch for the emotional trauma that is claimed with the zone, I can deduce with my wonderful detective skills that this poem has reached out to quite a few people who have had this experience.
Now it's to move onto the actual poem itself.
Very fluid movement in the poem
Controlled rhyme-scheme that you should be proud of. I love the use of almost rhyming words like “messages” and “relatives.”
Having a very strong emotion in the poem which really makes the reader feel sorry for your troubles.
Your stanzas are broken up into three sections. It gives the impression of having a story with a beginning, middle and end. I like this because it's giving the poem some sort of centre to it. It's not a free-verse which is flying all over the place.
In future poetry, the biggest suggestion I'm going to give you is not to pick such a common theme. There is nothing wrong with writing about the common poetry topics like fear, romance or love, but I'm suggesting this out of positivity. You're a good writer, I bet you could put this amount of emotion into some abstract and wonderful idea.
I have see from your other poetry that you have done this. With interesting topics like, “Hunting of the Job,” and “Happy New Year.”
With a poetic mind such as your own, I hope you find more time for writing creative pieces like this and more.
