Friendship Needed

Calling friends because I'm in need

Friendship Needed

I find myself

In search of a few smiles

Some chatter

While I drive

While I sip on my favourite

Hot chocolate

Or Iced milk tea

All alone.

I am not ungrateful

I have both my parents


A wonderful man for a husband

New family I've inherited

Through marriage.

But who knew

There would come a day

Where this introvert

Would long for

A friend.

A true friend.

Always there.

A listening ear.

A laughing face.

A number to dial when I have something to share.

That my husband wouldn't be interested in hearing.

It's been too long.

Maybe I need to

Come out of my shell again.

To find this friend.

    I don't know how to express my pain regarding your pain except to see you in that image you posted with your poem. That is you, that is me, and countless others surrounded by ghosts we can't see, not knowing you are not alone and yet we are. So glad Dharrsheena Raja Segarran reached out to you.Someone to talk to while you eat some cake. Loved the poem, btw.

  • Easier said & longed for than done. Blessings, my friend.
