Friend Or Foe - Poem by Jill Burns

Your shallow heart won't beat in time with mine,
but our paths always seem to intertwine

Your demons work against you,
causing you to live among the crowd
But I perfer solitude,
so I can live my life, proud

Then our eyes turn away
when we meet again, every other day

It happens often,
a common game we play
We meet again,
only to turn away
Yet somehow we've remained friends to this day

Now confusion is what I feel talking to you
And frustration is what I get trying to understand you

It began one day, long ago
No we must decide, friend or foe?
