Shadowed Faces

Stressful pain affecting my heart and brain. My friends I love & know will never leave are here for me. The other day she called with bad news. Her babies dead. She never let me near her and I never got to know her. Why’d she have to be so mean? Now she needs me and I’m here. She has depression and with this who knows what she feels compelled to do. This is why I’m here! She could never choose to do the same for me, but I could never choose to be so mean! I can’t say this will heal the past… it was so hard for me to get that call and the one that followed on Monday from the other friend. Whom also chose to hate on me! I know they know I’m the nice girl, the helper and that is why they called. That is why I’m here to help you! During this period, I will not fight, argue, or bring up past bullshit. I will not mind talking about Him around you. Yes, this means I don’t mind you getting mad. He makes me happy! As you sit and try to get me jealous… I will sit and smile away because when I cried on Sunday, my true friends were there for me! And He was there for me. When I cried on Monday because the confusion thrown my direction and all the pain came back into my heart… He called me… HE was there for me!! He was there to make me smile and do a happy dance with me. I adore the people that make me happy and when this is all over I know who I am staying friends with and I know who will always be a part of my past… another shadowed face in the crowd…

    Hi Lisa, I’ve read your three writings and they are superbly written. They seem to typify your youth and quest for reasoning in an unreasoning world among unreasoning people. The bulk of our experiences are good, it’s a shame we spend more time remembering the ‘not so nice one’s’. If I may quote a little piece I often refer to " Is life a boon so it must befall, that death when here he calls must call to soon". The moral behind it is Life is too short ‘enjoy’ yours, Barry
    PS. Your style of writing and content is fabulous.

  • Thank you for your kind words! When I do write about myself, I use poetry to rid the past and pain because it is truly a better life to live for ones self and smile throughout our days! I wish you the best of luck in life Barry.
