Perhaps a Friend

beachfriends

What did she need to help her mend?

A lover? No…perhaps a friend.

A heart with whom she shares her loss,

Who holds her hand and helps her cross

This bridge of change, from pain to hope,

(And maybe the occasional grope 🙂 )

Who helps her set her bound heart free,

A friend, a rough and tender he.

And maybe, while he helps her through,

She’ll find that she can help him too.

So now her unconvention ends,

And blushing, she waits for a friend.

  1. Love this. Just got off the phone with Her. First time since The Terrible. It wasn’t intimate but at least we are talking. This poem is the first thing I read after. It breaks my heart, in a good way. Thank you.

      • They will – either we will reconcile or we’ll finish it and move on to love other people. Either way, Abundance always provides. I’m not in agony, but I don’t like the limbo. It would be easier if she had just said “we’re done” and then I would have cried, put on my big girl panties and started dating.

        Instead we’re in the no-man’s land of “talking.” I guess I’m free to date, but it would end things and I don’t want things to end unless they are over. She isn’t sure we’re over.

        So there we go.

        What’s your love story, Litterally?
