My Darkest 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 must confess

But I can’t escape your cold caress.


I guess we’ll muddle through this mess

My only friend…my loneliness.

    I liked this one. SImple but transmits the feeling of loneliness everyone feels in a way that makes us realize it is important to feel lonely sometimes.
