New Best Friend

June 28, 2010
By Anonymous

As smoke filled up the Air.
All I could do is stare.

We're way under age.
Watching her filled my heart with rage.

Her mom deserves to know.
'But what if my best friend becomes my Foe?

What do I decide to do?
I'll tell you!

Nothing...

A few months later nothings really changed.
Just a "few" things added.

Drugs, Alcohol, Atheism.

My heart breaks!

I'm losing my best friend!

Have we been friends too long?
Does it matter what I say?
Does it matter how I feel?

She's always talking about it.
And I am always knocking sense back in her.

It doesn't matter.
It's all just "fun".

Does she even care?
About me?
About herself?!

She just doesn't know.

Her addictions don't make her stronger.
And her body can't take it any longer.

I SCREAM, cry, and pray every night.

What happens?

Nothing...

And every night I lay in bed, afraid.
Afraid for what tomorrow brings.

I just don't want her to wind up dead.

'But it doesn't matter what I do!
It doesn't matter what I've said.

Her addictions control her now.
Her addictions have become her new Best Friend.

Inspired? Ha. My poem is 100% true. And my friend will probably get Nothing from reading this. Like I've said, Nothing I say will matter.

I've gone through this before. Confront your friend about how you feel. She'll understand and hopefully get some help.
