Friendships can be difficult. I explored that concept today using poetry.
This is christyb and I am exploring the worlds of words and friendships.
Won’t you join me?
Tested And True
Her way is tested and true,
She tested it out on other people
With her chickenpox stares and
Voodoo doll dreams.
She turns her verbs, her nouns, and her eyes
Toward me, and
The true part is that she has no truth at her core
And her apple seed wishes have grown stale with time.
I used to crave her test,
I used to crave her words over silence, but
I put down the gloves and repeat to myself,
Silence is peaceful,
Silence is in my power.
