A Chapter by Debbie Barry

Written in 12th grade, a poem to a friend.




March 5, 1987

I'm so alone
Since you left me.
The tears fall
From reddened eyes.

My little games
Have caused heartbreak.
Your angry words
Have made me cry.

I love you, darling,
As my brother.
My husband's love
I'll not betray.

My love for you
Is strong and painful;
It needs no words,
Nor wedding day.

I'm sorry, dear one,
To have hurt you,
But now I only
Weep for you.

I'm so alone
Since you left me.
The one true trust
Of my past is gone.
