now a tightrope

December 28, 2020


i've never known friendship the way i did with you:
individual strands cannot be identified but
perhaps that is not the point -- our footpath crossed,
lives woven together with such intricacy 
that only God would have the ability to entwine
forming the beginnings of a never-ending friendship bracelet
containing elasticity beyond our most untamed imaginations
we told each other that this would be the secret to our friendship:
it would never falter, for it would never snap

though we tread on different trails
our lives lay connected through this cord
now wide enough to serve as a rope bridge
that we hastened across whenever we needed each other --
and isn't that enough of a reason to stabilize our wobbling walkway?

i guess we never got the chance
perhaps you pulled too far, perhaps i did
but when our bridge was stretched across an ocean
its strength was evaluated; our trust in our friendship
died, and with it, the bridge -- all that remains now
is a tightrope that we're both too scared to cross

i guess this is kinda like a pre-quel to my first piece "fraying friendship" but then it kinda covers the same thing in the end. i was thinking i might make this into a collection but it's definitely gonna need some work. and some editing XD

    wow, you really managed to capture this feeling perfectly. the whole metaphor with the tightrope is so relatable and gorgeous.
