I’ll Be Your Friend

She sits in the corner
Like a lifeless doll
The others play
With a deflated ball

She hides behind
Her false smile
It’s been like this
For a while

One could guess
What plagues her mind
No one asks
Scared of what they’ll find

Her skin is purple
Her skin is blue
She doesn’t know
What to do

Her dreams were ripped
Her dreams were shattered
She’s a silent case
Of bruised and battered

Who’s so cruel?
Who’s so mean?
The one who hurts her
Is unseen

She hides her face
She hides her fears
She hides the water
Free fall tears

Lights disappear
Clouds roll in
Children rush
To a decisive win

She’s left alone
Like she always is
By that fence
The fence that’s his
A small hand
Enters her view
A small voice says
I love you

She looks up
Into his eyes
Seeing the truth
And no lies

He pulls out a band aid
Gives it to her to mend
He smiles and says
“I’ll be your friend”
