A Friend

The trust I put in you back then
My friend, I thought, through thick and thin
Who I believed would never leave
Leaves only memories to which I cleave

I seal my fate with my own words
Summoning my coiled innards
Expelling depression and pain
From your presence, I must abstain

If time could only be rewound
A loyal friend I would have found
Tears to choke back from my throat
Regretting words I shant have wrote

The sobs engulf my dreams with shame
To hurt you never was my aim
Wake to a blood curdled scream
Recognize my voice’s extreme

Jagged edges pierce my chest
Now perhaps I’ll get some rest
Words remembered sear my heart
Don’t allow me to depart

Hoping for a sweet resolve
Jolt awake, silence dissolves
Ripped apart by what remains
All the horrid pain sustains

You were born an origanal why die a copy?The secret to success is the consistency to pursue.To the world you may be one person,but to one person you may be the world.To receive the right answer,you must ask the right question.Don't worry be happy! :)
