Friend

For the brief time I’ve known you,
aloof, independent and cool,
I’ve never known if I need you,
but you are no one’s fool.

You come and go as you see fit,
disappear for hours on end,
I worry so I lose my wits,
What a way to treat a friend?

There are moments of affection.
Without you I would pine.
Am I an object in your world?
Whose need is greater – yours or mine?

And now you’re here with me again,
aloof and nonchalant.
I wonder if you’ll stay this time,
I wonder what you want?

I try to please you, feed you
with your favourite dish,
with menus à la carte gourmet,
and all your favourite fish.

Then you disappear all night,
filling me with dread,
I’m so relieved when I wake to see,
you’re curled up on my bed.

  1. Excellent! Somehow I believe you met him in a former life. You know each and everyone of his tricks, and you still fret. True love; it never dies, it just ‘disappears’ for awhile. Kudos; job well done!
