Listen To A Friend


I love the way you listen,

Touching minds the way we do.

Lowering inhibition,

Encouraging–try this on

For a minute or two.


When we cry and let it out,

We find what caring's all about.

Your fertile mind, a place to explore,

I trust mine own is not a bore.


Good laughs do void the blue.

I'll always have one for you.

Cannot thee now to depend

There upon your next of kin,


But I will always be your friend.

      Wow touching minds, what a new poetic idea, this poem is sowing much thought , weaving muse and friendship so nicely. ESP liked the 'inhibition line and ' fertile mind' line best, which enhances the interesting elements of the poem. Kudos,.
      Pls do check out my poem too. I'm a new poet here but have been writing poetry and acknowledged for it elsewhere until I found this site and wish to make new poem pals.
