Twice as Nice: Shifting Emotions in Unrequited Love

You are
Twice as nice,
Twice as cool.
Twice too smart, twice too true.

You are
Twice good-looking,
Just too good.
Twice everything that is you.


Too much everything is not good.
Too cool, too much good.

Too much nice, too much cool.
Too much smart, ain't so true.


The title "Twice as Nice" suggests that the author is attracted to someone and admires them. However, the poem takes a turn towards disappointment and disillusionment as the author realizes that the person they were interested in is not as perfect as they initially thought.

The repetition of "Twice" at the beginning of the poem emphasizes the attractiveness of the person, but then shifts to a negative tone as the author realizes that too much of a good thing can be harmful.

The use of contrasting statements, such as "Twice too smart, twice too true," followed by "Too much nice, too much cool," highlights the change in perception and the realization that the person is not as perfect as initially believed.

The poem reflects the author's shift from admiration to indifference towards the person they were once interested in as they come to terms with the reality of the situation.
