To My Friend Poem by paul barnacle

To My Friend



I know you in that chair
Opposite.
Trying not to hide from me,
Measuring your honesty.
Appropriate.
I form my understanding of you through my own experiences and experiencing.I am overwhelmed by your sadness,
your isolation
your loss
your shroud
yourself and hold it close as we talk about nothing.
Measured
Appropriate.


These are not my words, but words about me,
By a woman of gifted sight,
I have been blessed to have sat with her and known my lies were transparent,
Thank you Colette.
