SISTERS ARE WHAT YOU CALL THEM

She is the only one who can beat you at an argument.

What is worse is that she knows it,

She is the only one, who really knows what you tweet about,

And who those updates are directed at,

She is the only one, who knows just how you like your eggs,

But getting her to do that is another story,

She is the only one who can blackmail you,

Because she knows everything there is to know about you,

She is the only one who can get your size right,

no matter how much you loose or add weight,

She is the only one who knows just what you are about to say,

And goes ahead to say it,

She is the only one you can talk to for hours and hours,

Day after day, year after year,

She is the only one you can tell your secrets to,

Because you know they will remain secrets,

She is the only one who won’t talk, talk and talk

When all you need is an ear and a hug,

She is the only one you will introduce to all your friends,

And they all send shout outs to her,

She is the only one you always run to first,

Because she tells it like it is,

She is the only one always nicks your favorite earrings,

Just because they go with her favorite pair of jeans,

She is the only oneyou don’t tell “I love you” too often,

She already knows it.

She is the only one who is both a friend and relative,

Not only do you love her, you like her,

She is the only one is the only one you may never talk to,

But always love and care for.

  1. … and yet this poem is not just about familial love, is it? It’s application is universal. That alone appeals to me best. It’s not about verisimilitude at all, but candid veracity…

    And yet for some reason, there’s a sinister edge somewhere around it – perhaps because of the vulnerability of the lead persona that the confidant knows about and is almost at full liberty to disclose as stated in among one of the lines there. Still, that is countered by loyalty and reliability of the one wielding the ultimate power of the other. Commendable description, I must say.

    The various phrasal breaks add to the suspense, the manner of reliance and character cleverly described get the reader gripped, the emphasis and diligence applied in getting the message across and the attention to detail is top-notch.

    Beautiful writing as always.
