a friend.


I want someone
who will understand me
even when I know
(and she knows)
I am being completely
(and even a little crazy)

I want someone
who will keep my secrets
and tell me hers
even the ones
never before shared
(and the ones
that humiliate us)

I want someone
who will not abandon me
for a newer model
because she would never
think I am replaceable
(even when I wish
I could replace myself)

I want someone
who magically knows
when I need her
and she is there for me
with a hug
(and maybe
some really good coffee)

I want someone
who will show me
what’s amazing about me
even when I am blind
to all but darkness
(and remind me
darkness is good too)

I want someone
who will make me laugh
even when I think
I never will again
(and of course
laugh so much
that we both cry)

I want someone
who will be with me
even when I don’t
want to be with myself
because she loves me
(even when
I am wholly unloveable)

I want someone
who will share the laughter
and the tears
and the hugs
and the connection
and the love
(I want a friend)

tiny red heart.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    Hoping you have people in your life you can talk to. Friends you grew up with, or have stuck with you along the way. Even on here, I think you have many. Although a physical presence always helps too. Hope you are doing okay Sandra. If you need to talk I’m always available.
