    Not sure if this belongs here but in a sad sort of way it motivates me...maybe because it puts into words the ache in my heart.



    Will You Be My Friend?
    - James Kavanaugh

    There are so many reasons why you never should:
    I'm sometimes sullen, often shy, acutely sensitive,
    My fear erupts as anger, I find it hard to give,
    I talk about myself when I'm afraid
    And often spend the day without anything to say

    But I will make you laugh
    And love you quite a bit
    And hold you when you're sad.
    I cry a little almost every day
    Because I'm more caring than the strangers ever know,
    And, if at times, I show my tender side
    (The soft and warmer part I hide)
    I wonder
    Will you be my friend?
    A friend
    Who far beyond the feebleness of any vow or tie
    Will touch the secret place where I am really I,
    To know the pain of lips that plead and eyes that weep,
    Who will not run away when you find me in the street
    Alone and lying mangled by my quota of defeats
    But will stop and stay - to tell me of another day
    When I was beautiful.

    Will you be my friend?
    There are so many reasons why you never should;
    Often I'm too serious, seldom predictable the same,
    Sometimes cold and distant, probably I'll always change.
    I bluster and brag, seek attention like a child.
    I brood and pout, my anger can be wild,
    But I will make you laugh
    And love you quite a bit
    And be near when you're afraid.
    I shake a little almost every day
    Because I'm more frightened than the strangers ever know

    And if at times I show my trembling side
    (The anxious, fearful part I hide)
    I wonder,
    Will you be my friend?
    A friend
    Who, when I fear your closeness, feels me push away
    And stubbornly will stay to share what's left on such a day
    Who, when no one knows my name or calls me on the phone,
    When there's no concern for me - what I have or haven't done -
    And those I've helped and counted on have,
    oh so deftly, run.
    Who, when there's nothing left but me,
    Stripped of charm and subtlety,
    Will nonetheless remain.

    Will you be my friend?
    For no reason that I know
    Except I want you so.
    - The End -
