A Shy Smile


Yesterday, I sat by my friend side;
Listening to her whimpering of the savage life,
Tears filled her eyes, sobs gushed in her throat,
I held her close whispering sweet consoling words to her ear,
Till her lips trembled swiftly
Showing a shy smile at corners of her mouth.
Today, I am sitting alone
With none by my side, nor my friend of last night.
But I don’t blame her,
For she is no longer alive!
Tears filled my eyes, sobs gushed in my throat.
I breathed sweet consoling words in the air,
My lips trembled swiftly,
Showing a shy smile at corners of my mouth.

    A very intense and emotional write. Also a sad story of
    someone that has gone away. The sun will shine again.

    Sounds like a bad ending to a comforting story, , , did you really lose your friend of last night or you just made her up? I loved it though, nice poetry mate. (Report) Reply
