the friend i wish i could love as a woman loves a man

the friend i wish i could love as a woman loves a man September 13, 2016
add a line about happy times
my new friend recommends
but there were no happy times
i say
for the relationship that never was

this friend
is a new friend
i have carried in my soul
for a hundred years
how else could it be
that eight thousand miles away
his eyes heal me?

but what of the friend
you wish that you could love
as a woman loves a man
but know you may never
touch with your lips?

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
