Born again?! No, I'm not. Excuse me for getting it right the first time. - Dennis Miller

My best friend
Has blood-red dripping eyes
With dark black centres
They stare lovingly at those around
Warming frozen souls
But not melting them

My best friend
Has pale white skin
With no obscene blemishes
It radiates the yellow caress
Of the sun

My best friend
Has dark black hair
Soft but matt
Like cat’s fur
Or a horse’s mane

My best friend
Grins constantly
Showing crystal teeth
They loved to smile

My best friend
Is very still
They look almost

They took my best friend
And locked them away
In a beautiful wooden box
And put them in a warm hole
To sleep

I miss my best friend
They knew me so well
But others say that what I did
Was insane
And I won’t be let out again
Maybe one of them can be my
New best friend
To keep me company in this place

But I need someone special
Warm and friendly,
What about you?

This is a weird one, I got the inspiration from My Last Duchess by Robert Browning.
