NaPoWriMo #24

A quick poem to catch me up.

Friend

what a friend!
what’s a friend?
we wile away whole fields
of hours and whole continents
of years holding
each other, laughing
existing in the same space
if not the same place

could have been could have been
kind
could have listened
could have asked
could have helped
could have given me
the time of day

tired of feeling
you out day by day
hoping you’ll say
anything
hoping you’ll stay

I
I thought
I thought we
I thought we were
I thought we were friends.
