I'm here, my friend


Place it here, this angst, this pain
hidden beneath you
you carry the spite
of wrongful gain
place it here,
within me,
to hold the burden
of which has stolen your light
taking it in, myself
to buckle down
under chains intertwined,
captured
in the tormented minds
of the unfaithful
bare it down
pass it along
place your heavy heart
on the ground stone
of our friendship
entrust in me,
to nurture this bereavement
absorbing it, I vow
to sooth it smooth
into silken cashmere
of which I will tuck you in
safely
under softness

  5. As much as we want to be that friend...we want one also, a friend who will fill all the cracks of our broken and tortured moments.

    "I hate to see your injury, wish that you could transfer all your pain to me..."

    Wishing doesn't make it so, but isn't the fact that I want to, a comfort of sorts...that I would if I could?

  21. I am not a people's person (I much prefere dogs! I do not lie)but sometimes, just sometimes people (especially friends) are needed to ease a pain only true friends know how. Loving your words, you.

  22. This brought tears to my eyes, I lost a good friend just like this when I had to move, she broke my heart as she was not the true friend I thought.. since then I have found a few that I can trust and share anything with, one is a sister, the other is a friend I call her sissy, the other is someone I love dearly

    I would love to be this friend with you.

    SMILES.
