It's so disheartening,
disappointing
and dissatisfying
to find your friend is a filthy
fickle fiend.
Cruel, captivating companion
taking treacherous talks seriously
turning a daydream,
dazzling defiantly,
into a viciously vile
villain.

She never uttered it as so directly,
but the message came across nonetheless.
The sentence holds so much more than the meaning that comes straight to mind.
New ideas?
From what?
From who?
Open?
My friend always tries to shelter me
While simultaneously trying to rip me out of my shell.
She has a heart of gold,

But because of them.
She is remarkably human,

She puts on a show
Tears streaming, sobbing, crying, yelling
She puts on a show
Tongue sharper than a blade
She puts on a show
Lies falling out as quick as a snake strikes its prey
She puts on a show
Changing her story
They see it.
Fumbling across her words
They see it.
Angrily spewing

I only get cards in the mail, always too late

Your words don't erase who I am.
Frankly, I know you understand.
Your words don't convince me anymore that I am
not worth for them to give a damn.
Your words can be like daggers, spears and swords;
ways to make me and others feel worthless and nothing more.
But I will shield myself with actions of kindness
the only cure for your blindness.
I will turn the other cheek,
so to speak
Bite my tongue,

You were my air.
I breathed in every word you said.
Exhaled every doubt you took away.
You were the beat of my heart.
Steady, almost always a consistency in my life.
You rarely weren’t there when you needed to be.
You were the little noises in an empty house.
You spoke softly, carefully, but often.
Though not I did not know the full story of your origin,
you helped make the silence bearable.
You were the moon.

My friend always tries to shelter me
While simultaneously trying to rip me out of my shell.
She has a heart of gold,
and I look up to her not in spite of her faults,
But because of them.
She is remarkably human,
personality raw and unashamed.
Naturally dark haired, but vibrant colors appearing now and then
Bright, nearly soul-piercing blue eyes
that see through any facade
Heart shaped face spotted with freckles
expression forever set in a state of worry
and knowledge beyond the expected
She is no fool, nor a coward. She is fierce
powerful, even if she doesnt believe so.
When her worry took a turn towards me,
it had to have started
when she saw a different side of me
A side...

Bite my tongue,
hold my breath till I burst a lung.
I will be patient with you.
Others may think maybe I shouldn't, that's true -
But Ill give you the benefit of the doubt,
even when Id rather shout,
Because I see something beautiful in those dark, far off eyes
Something that says youve given too many goodbyes
And you have reasons
To make your mood change like the seasons
And too little of people haven't been there
So you feel like there isn't anyone who...

You were the moon.
A soft, steady light that may have changed every now and then,
but you helped light a path in the dark.
You were my eyes.
Always looking, searching for danger to keep me from.
You showed me the way; you let me see it.
You were my antidote.
The only thing that could save me.
You made the pain slip away, slowly.
You were the brief peace in the midst of a storm.
Lovely and hopeful,
But it was your guard to...
