Clutching loneliness in the palms of my hands

Crying until my eyes begin to bleed

Wishing this void would fade

As friends we grew into lovers

His love has become my comfort

But it doesn’t fill the emptiness inside

I wish I had friends

I used to have so many

As time moved forward

Friends became strangers

Strangers I did not want to associate with

Now I am left alone

Missing the comfort of a friend

Every time a best friend emerged

They never stayed for long

[Rest In Peace Melissa]

My maturity caused separation

Cultural differences transpired barriers

I don’t know where I belong

Never imagined I’d be jealous of his friendships

People I could relate to

Strangers just like me

If only I had friends
