True Friends

Note: I wrote this poem for some of close friends who are suffering from domestic abuse. This song will ensure that they know that I am there for them.

You are better than a song to me

If I kiss you on your cheek

It won’t be enough…

You feel like an ephemeral and dainty scent

My heart sings like a lark when I sense your smile

I am in love with my true friend

So I run barefoot on the grass

To get to you

Can I keep running like this?

Oh sweet friend, when would you be back?

And shower your sweet words on me

I was just daydreaming about you

You are still my chum; you are still my chum

I sing to you of an accepting world that’s kind of foreign to me

Thus, my words are a solitary folly

Love reciprocates only when the other heart speaks

The other heart…

The other heart…

When you don’t speak, then you become a rhythm

Rhyme that rhythm with your friend

Rhyme that rhythm with your friend

The rhyme doesn’t know anything else

The rhyme doesn’t know how to reciprocate

Thus, this rhyme is inspiring and true

See you around, my kind of nutcase
