Fragile Friendship

November 19, 2008
By Malka Lebovic, Baltimore, MD

Once a fluid motion
running through all I do,
becomes a preconceived notion,
erased and edited before you.
my lips utter one thing,
my soul pounding a different course.
I've learned how to sing,
but, where are you to hear my voice?
Carefully i step, pitter-pattter
as not to break the glass on which we stand
or stumble off this rickety ladder.
come take my hand,
Let's tip-toe together,
I'll spot you.
Let's climb forever,
Just us two.

this poem really speaks to me in a way that few do. i've read many pieces from this author, and i find her work to be exceptionally touching and poignant. i like that this poem can represent love, friendship, or both.
