'My Closest Friend'

I'll never find love,
of that I am certain,
I walk over to close up that black curtain,
I'm just giving up,
this is the end,
my only focus is on my own arms,
I rend,
ripping the flesh and the skin from the bone,
it's not like I feel it,
the pains not my own,
I've been tortured too much,
by the games people play,
and now my own pain is how I fly away,
Are you hearing me out?
Are you listening me through?
I hope so,
I do,
for I needed a listener,
a true freind,
a good one would do,
but the best one,
by far,
my best freind,
is you,
