    Ever
    give up something
    you know makes living life easier
    someone who softens a day and nights aren’t as
    dark as they used to be?

    I
    don’t want you
    for a season I want you
    for all times

    do you know I love you?

    I
    do

    but…
    I sense time
    is running out for us
    and I’m scared

    urgency is in my heart

    I
    really
    need to get through
    to you

    I
    want to get through
    to you

    before…

    I’m
    through
    with
    you

    we
    are slipping
    fast
    losing ground

    I want our journey to last

    but
    the end seems near
    and
    I’m really scared
    frustration breathes in me
    disgust creeps in breeding reluctance
    to engage in what I once loved
    in you

    I remember when
    enthusiasm came with a mare
    thought of you
    and
    sweet after-thoughts of
    our conversations tickled me
    into a warm grin

    I want that again

    I’m not looking for
    you to change

    I just want you to
    bend a little so we can be friends in
    peace not in war
    because…

    I can’t do this anymore.

    I love
    so many things
    about you

    but…
    the one thing I hate
    haunts me


    I

    hate

    you

    yes… sometimes… I do
    for not accepting some responsibility
    for the trouble times we are in

    I
    reflect
    on us constantly
    attempting to find the place
    where drama came in
    to play

    drama isn’t a stranger

    but…

    lately
    its been too d*mn close
    and its wearing me thin and its not just
    on my end

    blameless… I’m not

    but…
    for you I’m ready to put
    my faults on the table and curve
    my appetite

    I don’t want much
    say…
    a little
    consideration

    aren’t I worth it?

    I
    want us
    to do what it takes to make
    us a lifetime thing

    I know you are worth it

    I don’t want to change you

    I

    love

    who

    you

    are

    I just
    want you and me
    to find the peace we lost
    between us

    Can we do this?​

    There are people who enter our lives and brighten it up like a piece of sunshine
    and when slight disagreements start to dim the relationship
    we can decide do something on nothing to save it.

    This touched me more than I can say, because I know this space. When 2 people are in this kind of stew, both put some ingredients in that made it bitter, and the friendship is worth both admitting that. I hope things can turn around for you sis, your ink is astounding.

    Watz...

    I should tell my friend to talk to you, so you can let them know what time it is!!!:)

    I have read many times people reply how a poet must have read their diary or been in their head and never thought much of it, but when it comes to you responding to my poems and breaking my thoughts and emotions down to few words that touch me soul deep, I see what they mean!.

    Thanks Sistah-Friend, your presence its always appreciated!!!

    between friends...

    there is a river

    this river sing songs of
    "i know what i did,"
    and
    "don't blame this kid,"
    but
    "i love you,"
    is
    always
    at
    hand

    they are connected by the river
    they are held together by the song the river sings
    and everything they go through
    the river knows
    the river holds
    the river never forget
    the many moments of happiness
    and the timeless bless
    that keeps them true

    i hear you

    i've always heard the song the river sings
    when it sings your name
    i've heard the daily games
    ...on the edge of insane
    when laughter took hold of you
    and all you wanted to do
    was to name a few
    of the things
    bothering you.

    i hear you.

    friendship never falters
    and laughter
    doesn't coz pain
    and the gains in life
    brought you this way
    and "everyday" taught you to say
    all the things "between us" said
    to a place your heartbeat led (you to)
    that no one knew
    but you.

    i hear you.

    the "friendship-for-life" crew
