My best friend River

my best friend river
sometimes
well no
always
is sad
he tries his best
to show me he's not
but i see in his eyes that he is

my best friend river
always tells me he loves me
and i say it back
but i can tell
that with him
he means it
to the core of his soul

my best friend river
never thinks of himself
he always puts his friends first
and sometimes i wish
he would learn
to love
himself
but he pushes it away like he's afraid

my best friend river
has so many demons
that he bottles up
until they
all
come
crashing
out

my best friend river
brings a new meaning to strength
because for him
every day is an
accomplishment
and i think
he deserves
to be happy
inspired by poetri's piece My best friend Riley gets sad sometimes
prompt: write about yourself as if you were writing about your best friend.

    The short choppy lines add so much to the meaning of this, almost like you're gasping for air and I seriously love it so much, adds so much emotion and character to the piece. Absolutely adore this one and wish you all the best :)
