Losing A Friend

Losing A Friend

A Poem by Markus Anthony
"

IM rotation was that b***h.

"
I lost a friend in August
When blood and sputum stained my whites
And sleep was a luxury I'll grab anytime
As I cared for adults, to their wellness or decline.

I regret the day I spoke of evil words
A seed for chaos farmed by evil souls
From then on I only spoke near the purest
Or I'll risk the company I love dearest.

The hindrance to my sleep
Was a deep cut in my heart
Huge waves water my eyes
As good memories rush every time.

This year will cap, in good light I hope
With our togas green, and tassels dangling right
True and sweet, will be my hugs
To my friend next to me, smiling bright.

i love this piece and totally agree with the sentiment. Appreciate our friends and let them know that we do.
Each time we part tell them we love them...because if they are suddenly gone tomorrow we will be filled with regret. I am sorry for your loss, Markus.

Your poetry is characterised by your ability to tell a story from your experience, thus it appears from the heart. I simply love the opening stanza in this one which seems to say you were so busy and focussed you didn't value the relationship enough.

I really appreciate you coming by my feed. Thank you for this review.
This heartfelt poem touched me deeply. Losing a good friend is so difficult to deal with and you do reflect on your relationship with that person. If there has been any animosity, then it is likely to linger. I am sorry for your loss.
