Philia – Deep Friendship
The closes thing to a lover,
my friend can hurt me most by being her blessed self.
My friend appoints herself to slowly lift veils
and reveals the things I trust to no one else
so that I can build trust in all things.
We trade music, ideas
Stumble home together
Dance to our favorite songs and speak in other languages
Play on four tracks intellectually spar
Pan for romance
Soothe the hurt of living
See the potential
We ties threads across counties and countries
patiently waiting at each end
for each other’s return.
We share a solid place that is at once quiet and loud
Close and near
Silly and somber
Stars knitted together in the wild sky.
