"A father is a banker provided by nature."

-French Proverb

I saw you in the hallway as a timid freshman boy
And when you friend-requested me, it brought me tears of joy
As I view your standard info; all your quotes, your favorite shows
Your profile songs and photos, my infatuation grows
My love, I tried to tell you. I clicked “like” for every post
In hopes that I could show you that it's you I “like” the most
We chatted until midnight, in that little purple box
And I got so excited at those little message *pops*
Today I felt the time had come, I'd worked through all the fear
I'd confess my total love for you – online, of course, my dear
After half an hour of chatting, I just stowed away my pride
Cracked my knuckles, said a prayer, then took a breath and sighed
And as I typed “I love you” and prepared to click on Send
Your relationship status named the name of my best friend
Now my Wall has been demolished, and my News Feed has been fed
I might as well just log off, do my homework, go to bed
Because my love is unprofessed, you will not make amends
But as long as you stay on that list, we'll always still be Friends
But because I want this broken heart somewhere that you will look
I've uploaded my broken heart to your new boyfriend's Facebook

"No! See, that's not nice. The nice way to do it is to say 'Go take a long walk off a short pier."

..It's insane that you know me so well. I could never do rhymes because it limits what you can write, but yours just fit so perfectly. It never goes off-topic, and is very relatable. One of my favorites

You make poetry seem so effortless!

Your rhymes aren't forced and the flow is perfect! You pace greatly and use easy vocab!

Can't wait to see more of your work!

Stunningly clever. I keep a safe distance from Facebook. But I don't think I'll ever tire of hearing people ask each other "Will you be my Friend?"

"There exists no heaven and no hell, nothing to look forward to after we have gone to ashes; live every moment NOW, and make things happen the way you want to in this lifetime; not the next."

Whoa, well written!

I like how you based it on Facebook activities and the way the poem progresses - I'm sure a million people would have undergone this :)

Well-done! :P
