An Open Letter to a Dear Friend

An Open Letter to a Dear Friend

A Poem by Yael Asofsky

Dear Old Friend, 

A

Your mere seven letters
push the four of 
'mine'
all over the place.

N

I told you to
leave me alone and
leave me be
and yet you chase.

X

Stop following me!
My mom thinks I'm rude and
my dad thinks I'm a 
basket case.

I

When will this torment
end?
After I've become a 
disgrace?

E

Enough already,
the clock is ticking but 
there is no time I can trace.

T

Every waking moment a
collection of pain, hurt, and
sorrow I wish to erase.

Y

You never left.
You were the only one 
who stayed.
You were the ace.
