View Full Version : Helping a friend...

to get past her troubles.

This is just a poem I wrote when a friend came to me one day. I imagined what she would feel in her perspective
I just wanted to post this for no reason in particular besides I just felt that I needed to. She asked me not to mention her name or her problem (as you will see)

Hope you feel better my friend! <3


I looked up at the ceiling and pondered
I felt a heavy feeling in my chest as I replayed the words again
What's with my brain today?
Why do I even think these things?


The thoughts keep replaying in my mind
Is this a test? or some sort of call?
Time passes and I try to shake them off again
Persuading myself to crawl out of the ditch I dug myself


I sighed as I found nothing I could do
Youtube, Facebook, Devianart, Wattpad
Nothing to keep my thoughts away
Not even music could remedy my feelings


I need to stop this
I'm hurting myself in the inside
The weight in my chest just keeps getting heavier
I think I'm drowning in my own emotions


I get to my bed and curled up under my sheets
What is happening to me? Why do I feel this way?
I wished I could scream but I don't want to
I could be heard and questions will be asked


I couldn't think who to talk to about this
Most of them will be surprised of course
So I must keep it tightly bottled up
And I have to bury it deep into my concsiousness


I don't know how long I would be able to hide this
I feel like I need to tell this to someone but who?
Thinking about it again I stare at the ceiling


I got back to my laptop and logged in to Skype
Is she here? She's usually online...
Oh she is! I greet her and she replies politely
I'm feeling scared now, should tell her?


I gather what little confidence I had and typed
In one sentence I told her the secret I had
Everything stopped but not my heart
It raced as I waited for her reply


Suddenly see the pencil animation pop out
She's replying, I hope she doesn't make fun of me...
I watched as she calmly typed, "It's alright; elaborate"
I smiled; "Thanks"


And with that I started to explain what I felt
I typed vigorously to her, telling her everything
My hands are moving on their own now, my instinct guiding them
I finished my confession and asked if she could keep this quiet


"This will be a pretty good story or even a poem!" she typed back
I gave her a sad face which she countered with a sorry and a huggle
I chuckled and sighed as I allowed her to write what she wished
"Just make sure not to put any of what I typed to you or who I am!"



Anyway, this is my first attempt at doing a poem in a long time, especially a free verse one
I hope I did well though~

Feedback is appreciated and please grab some cookies before you leave!

Ooh, don't mind if I do... *takes two cookies* ...What? You gotta eat these things in pairs. It's just the law.
Anyways. I'm not really a poetic kind of person, but this managed to keep my interest. And I enjoyed reading it.
Also, I hope your friend manages to overcome this problem or these problems. I send my regards... and, uh... *looks around* ...This. This... plant.

Anyway, she says that she's feeling better but sadly still not her usual mood *saidfaice*
