Unintelligible Susurration


Death of Our Friendship


This is the bitter end
of another friendship
gone awry;
a friendship that never
was meant to bring
two people together
and have them
depend on one another.

Join me for the funeral
as we watch our memories
be buried in the dirt
with the worms and bugs
who will eat
every last memory,
never to be recalled again.

This is the death
of our friendship.
May it rest in peace
and be forgotten
like all those other ones
you have buried
along with ours.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem I am proud of because it accurately describes what I was thinking when a particular friendship ended. All of my friendships have gone awry and are not meant to last.

I wrote this poem at the start of this month, knowing one of these days my friendship was bound to turn to dust...
