Eyan Desir

... A True Friend_

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hold my branch, through time
Rhyme with honest lines
Watch my back, I'll watch yours
Stand with me in the storms
Strengthen me when I'm down
Understand my flaws
Control your emotions
Trust me, I'll trust you
In the heat of a fight
No one knows who's right
Don't use words to fright
After dark comes light
If you're still in sight
After the deadly storms
I know you are one

    A true friend will stand by you through thick and thin, through the storms and never abandon you. This is a wonderful tribute to loyalty, and the guidelines to follow in true friendship. Well written, Eyan.

    A give and take policy, rules the show here
    Endure the test, then comes the light, real
    There is a saying -
    'Friends aren't jumper cables.
    You don't throw them into the trunk
    And pull them out for emergencies.”
    They are the ones, always at the side by.

    So much thoughts i could grasp and clasp.
    Thank you for these muses.

    by using implicit metaphors like:
    'Hold my branch'
    'Watch my back'
    and cognitive metaphors like:
    'If you're still in sight'
    Relationships with friends are about trust.. We need to open our heart each other.. Without that, no relationship is possible.....well written..10++
