FRIENDS

By 12th October 2007December 9th, 2019No Comments

When the dark night calls
To the souls disappointments
The gulf grows
Between yourself and the world
They hear you

When the cloying emptiness
Takes your breath away
Your feelings retract
Until you are just a molecule
They hold you

For their heart is large
Their understanding deep
Though they may not have experienced
They are willing to listen
To learn
To be a part of

That is all many of us ask
For by this act
We return to the world
Being of it
Rather than in it
