Darkest Friend

Darkest Friend

A Poem by Ella

Sometimes your darkest friend and your closest friend are the same.

So we meet again?
I guess I should call you my friend.
for every night with no end,
you grin and come in.
Oh you marvelous being
with little to no feeling.

"How do you do?"
it sticks like glue
and makes you feel like you have no clue
which way to turn.
and just so you'll learn
he'll poke and he'll yearn.
Until you give in
and accept that he wins.

Because he is the one that you'll always trust
for he thinks and he knows,
that you're always alone.
So don't be a fool,
and don't try to play it cool.

For he is around.
and he knows everything now.

This is freaky and entertaining at the same time. Very engaging, and very well written! The two subtle pop culture references made me chuckle were marvellously placed. Much enjoyed!

This is a nice poem. There is a certain air of mystery to it, in my opinion. Since all readers have varying perception, I'll dare say that this poem seems more like about a lover than a friend, in my opinion.
Either way, a lover can be our best friend, or good friends can be good friends without any sexual connotation.
Nice Poem!
Well done girl!

Sounds like your friend is depression or something close to it. This is a unique way of writing your story and I enjoyed it very much

I really liked it! I also like how you didn't follow the same writing pattern throughout the poem, and were creative with your writing. Great!
