Friends

We talk, and talk, and talk, and talk

Everyday we make sure to keep in contact.

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.

The only thing I hear is ‘oh’.
