Paper Thin Friendship

Paper Thin Friendship

A Poem by Marie Harrison



Paper Thin Friendship

Computer compadres

Amigos sharing our angst

Exchanging our life stories and dreams

Overtime developing

A meaningful friendship

-        -   -

Had to leave for a few months

To attend to important life responsibilities

Creating life shifting changes in my life

Came back to write and

Share in this friendship again


-  -  -


Found myself

Mysteriously blocked

Paper thin friendship

One that blows with the wind

I never delete no-one. On my Myspace site. 1500 writers and poets are hanging on hoping for the old way. People do get busy and sometime hard to find time to write and read. I like this site. Serious writers wanting to improve and learn from each other. I like the complete poem. Thank you for the excellent poem.

I like the casual style of this poem. But it ends very powerfully...

Paper thin friendship
One that blows with the wind...

I really liked this. It's very modern and quite different, which is good.
I think though that there is a bit of a style difference (if you can even call it that?) between the first stanza and the last two. The first is more artistic and each verse doesn't necessarily form a full sentence with the next (you know what I mean?). Whereas the other two have verses that follow one another more directly.
Don't get me wrong, despite it being a little weird to me, I really like it, I just noticed that change, lol.
So anyway, great job!
Cheers and have a good day.
