Distant Friend

Decades passed since

our friendship found it’s fate

I, the ship, marooned n’ washed ashore

Because of her, when she chose her mate

Forever to keep me at arm’s length, her safety net

I doubled it to two arm’s- my favourite game of ‘ I’ll never forget’

You see, a true, long-lasting


could never exist with her,

She who meant to destroy our trust

I learned early on her gypsy heart had got me fished

Its been decades now my soul has aged

the light in her gypsy eyes

They would gradually fade

I only see her tired lies and tired soul

Although now I’m three arm’s length…

What she may know now is that

The friend she knew back in school

Early on, knew to swim away
