He tells me the truth,
Gives me a hug.
Being crushed under the sole of a shoe,
All of a sudden, I am a little bug,

I have left,
Just a couple of days.
I have no way of getting out,
Trapped in a twisted maze.

I have shed many tears.
Tears of despair,
Thinking about the emptiness,
All that would be there.

There have been moments of silence.
Forced smiles.
Thinking about being far away,

He’s my best friend,
And he knows I’m in despair.
Because every time my eyes fill,
I can tell that he really does care.

The author's comments:
I wrote this when I was saying goodbye to my best friend. He was moving to Egypt and he was my closest, dearest friend... still is... always will be. A week ago, we Skyped and I heard his new manly voice and saw him for the first time in over a year. He is a true friend, someone who'd blindly do anything for me, and someone I'm willing to sacrifice anything and everything for.
