There is a fragile friend who sits with me
She begs to let her stay intact
To hear the cracks but look away
No, I cannot commit that act

There is nothing left but shatter her
Into dust with what I write
Perhaps it hurts to read the words
Yet the living of it deadly quiet

That friend in me who seeks comfort
While all around her self implodes
She must break apart to finally start
An honest walk with heavy load
