ɳot ϵverybody ɧas ɑ ᶂriend ʅike ʈhat

note: this particular work seems to be a strange blend of poetry and prose.

dedicated to jessie rose.

ɳot ϵverybody ɧas ɑ ᶂriend ʅike ʈhat

i was so strong that day
so sure my armor was perfectly polished
bearing my burdens alone
so sure my armor was perfectly polished

i was with you that day
telling nobody of my inner struggles
stumbling inwardly, but
so sure my armor was perfectly polished

i broke down that day
unable to keep the tears from flowing
i cried in front of you
so much for perfectly polished

you hugged me
you didn't need to know what was wrong
and at that moment, i knew
not everybody has a friend like that

with you, i talk
i actually share my realest feelings
with you, i'm myself
and somehow, you still accept me

 somehow, it's like
i can be myself, no matter what
you accept me
even when it's hard for me to accept me

someone who cares
really cares - in both word and deed
i am quite sure
not everybody has a friend like that

someone who listens
 without having to try to fix every problem
someone who can make you smile
jessie rose, you are a friend like that. 

The End
