my best friend hates being sad, yet she does it anyway

November 11, 2020


my best friend doesn't
like her name very much,
she says abby is
"too basic and common."

my best friend has the best of friends
always there to lend a hand
or a shoulder to cry on
to lend their words of wisdom
she doesn't know what she'd do without them

my best friend never has energy,
so she sleeps all day,
and wears the same clothes,
and sometimes she can't even
respond to her friends
because she just can't

my best friend cries
when she looks in the mirror
she can't help it
she just hates what she sees
hates the person staring
back at her

my best friend is sad
she cries herself to sleep every night 
and she often hides so people don't see
because if other people knew
just how sad she really is
then she'd be even sadder
inspired by poetri! PLEASE check theirs out! and everyone else who's done one using this prompt!!

i hope everyone is having a great day! take care of yourself, you're loved <3

    I'm sorry you feel this way. This is lovely, you are lovely. And for the record, I've never met an Abby who wasn't awesome.

    oh we are so similar.... for the record abby is a lovely name that is short and sweet and sorta deep? idk-- half the stuff i say barely makes sense. i like it. and you are certainly beautiful... your mind is a wonderful place. confusing and terrifying, yes, but beautiful non the less. i am so lucky to be your "friend" and i know we don't really know each other, but i can tell you are a delightful person. keep on being. <3<3<3
