I had a friend


I had a friend. She was important to me. We were really close. Told each other everything.
I had a friend. We had similar ambitions, goals, dreams. She wanted to be a certified make-up artist, I wanted to be a writer. We were set in our path and nothing could make us veer off.

I had a friend. Secrets are said to bring people closer when shared. She shared. I was scared.
I had a friend. I told her the truth, I was blunt. I didn't approve but supported.

I had a friend. She made new friends, veered off the path and went MIA. She came back, and there was a war. A war between friends. The respect was lost, and war is bad but was necessary in this case.

I had a friend. The friendship was broken there was no way to mend it.

Everything was made right, and the war came to end. But everything wasn't really "right".

I had a friend. For so long I didn't talk to her. Didn't want to remember. Everything was broken, there was no point. It was over.

I had a friend. She was my friend. Surely some broken things could be mended?
Thought about her for so long and wondered her outcome- was she doing okay? Had she returned to the path? Was there a chance for us?

I had a friend. An olive branch was extended. Things glued back but not quite in place. But she was doing good. Not quite on the path but getting there. That was good enough.

I had a friend. Some friendships last forever, some don't. But I do know that life is easier to handle when one has good friends.
