He's No More Mr. Nice Guy

a nice guy but not the right guy
an easy quip to put a smile on their face
never the right time or the right place
always the bridesmaid, never the bride so to speak
easy to be around never a threat
although he wanted to be
they just couldn’t see what he wanted them to see
not just a friend but a lover
wasn’t a bad boy like they wanted
even though they said otherwise
they were always full of white lies
he always got the brushoff like a winter coat with snow
never had the right stuff
never had it in him
always bounced off the front of the rim
he became good at traveling
eventually told himself he didn’t want it
bitterness setting in like a dog for the night
he no longer had a dog in the fight
joined the lone wolf society
