A Friend


Sitting in the dark, she hears a voice calling to her. *Shadow... Shadow, Come away from the edge. It's not safe. I don't want you to fall. It's too soon for you to leave the earth. Put down the knife Shadow Don't cause yourself any more pain. It's not worth it. Life will get better, that I promise you. I know that I'm no longer with you but life will go on. I know they hurt you and I know you can't take it. But my dear, you are the strongest girl that I know. You always have been.* Looking up she starts to cry. *Zach what do I do? Who can I go to? I have nobody. My family wont help me and the few friends I have dissapear when I need them the most.* She pulls her knees up to her chest as she feels her friends presance and his hand on her shoulder. *You will find a friend whom you can trust. Soon my dear soon.* And with that he starts to fade away.

    Shadow, desperation shows itself to you within these words, within this vision, this dream. Listen to his voice, hear his words, and do what your heart is reluctant to do... reach out for that one who is extending his hand, and take it. Very vivid; and yet, Zach speaks the truth. Trust him, trust me, trust someone...before the pain drives you beyond reach, before the pain drives you insane.; -) Kelly. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edward Thomas

Like the touch of rain she was
On a man's flesh and hair and eyes
When the joy of walking thus
Has taken him by surprise:

With the love of the storm he burns,
