Friendship

Friendship
Friendship is like pottery
It has its cracks, its breaks
It is usually taken for granted
No big deal, right?





Wrong!
Pottery takes time
It’s engraved




Invaluable
Pretty fragile, too One false move?







It’s over.

I love the metaphors in here... they are fantastic!!!  Although I LOVE the poem... I don't see most friendships this way.  There are several drama queens that act like this, but real friends never treat you like this.  Like Sarah22 said... they are like dazzling diamonds.

But it can be re-made:) I like the analogy and how you made each stanza mean more- standout more.
