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.

    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.
