Ol' Friend - Poem by Christopher Michael McGarry

I only wanted to say hello, I know its been long but
after all the time does it even matter anymore?
in so little time in so many ways you stood there
you walked there, and you've left there
making me softer and harder at the same time
I first felt love, no, I felt a kinship towards you
you were sweet and soft and I loved you, I thought
we were so young and what made me care? Oh how
I could go back and find myself, where am I now?
Could you go back and find yourself?
In the crowd, in the lost canvas of paints mushed silently
combining their strengths to form a irrefutable mold.
I only wanted to say hello, my old friend
now you don't remember me, and even if you did
would it really matter anymore? I remember you and there
must be a reason for this. Or I have wrecked
this beautiful excuse for a composition.

    After long absence,
    I have realized I only speak
    to myself!
    All These years of thinking I've been taken
    or have given and not received!
    There is no time to point fingers...
    Think what you want, for, my self,
    too much is wasted as the clock ticks.
    The dude said 'When all are healed,
    you can go home.'
    A battle that's best stayed away from.
