Friends

We talk, and talk, and talk, and talk

Everyday we make sure to keep in contact.

Then one day we skip the chatter.

It’s nothing strange,

I must have been busy.

Our once constant chatter has seems to have died.

Not too much later I find it hard to say hello.

Avoid you when I spot you from across the room.


But when I finally try to open up,

About the pain, or lack of, I’ve been feeling

You answer with no more than an ‘oh’.


‘oh’

This was a mistake,

Telling you my darkest secret.

‘oh’

What’s left of me starts to shatter.

‘oh’

I was asking too much when I asked for your help.


Not that I expected you to cure this unseen illness.

Maybe I just wanted the comfort of someone willing to fight this with me.

My mind’s a battlefield and I’m scared that I’m losing.


So when I think about suicide,

The only thing I hear is ‘oh’.
