A Faithful Friend

A Faithful Friend

Hello again, my fondest friend
You'll be with me until the end.

When I'm alone, you're always there
The only one who'll ever care.

You'll share a silent drink with me
And see the darkness that I see.

We'll dream together of love not found
And shriek in pain without a sound.

Silent nights and empty days
Two misdirected, wandering strays.

Enshrouded by this vile heat haze
We'll serve each other with eyes ablaze.

And when I reach for you I'll find
You're present there within my mind.

But you're always sad, and I can't see,
Why it is you stay with me.

I've thought to leave you, I confess
But I can't escape your cold caress.

I guess we'll muddle through this mess
My only friend...my loneliness.

Hi my new, amazing friend! You are so nice. There are a lot of nice people on here, I really enjoy it.Β 
Yes, I go through times of life being so lonely, even with lots of friends and family around. I don't understand it, I've always kind of been that way, but life has this sadness about it.Β 
However, wonderful people like you make it much better.Β 
Thanks Sparrow!Β

Sometimes that loneliness gets to you, you know? Life is a strange thing, and unfathomable, and impossible to explain. Makes you feel lost at times.Β

Cherie,Β 
I can't imagine you being lonely, you're too nice, and wonderful, but thank you so much for reading, and commenting. Sometimes it seems there's an inherent loneliness in life, even when there are others around. It's a strange feeling. Maybe because it's so hard to explain and comprehend, I don't know.Β 
Anyway, thanks my beautiful friend.Β 

Matthew.Β
