A Poem Of Friendship

by Robert Davidson


to escape the prison of my skull
you have become a necessary part of me
lurking on the fringes of my dream

relationships i find are vast deserts
demanding all, challenging all
and for that purpose we are given one another

left to myself i become inward, morose
whipped by self-pity's bitter lash
so when the ultimate separateness of soul frightens me
i return gratefully to the sympathy of touch

a friend of entirely different temperament
becomes a relief from the monotony of personality
a balm for the wounds of human love

now i know the thoughts of your heart before you speak them
our solitudes broken
i guard your privacy in fear of my own

Sorry Robert,

This poem is full of abstractions and reads like a Teen journal.

Seems to offer nothing for the reader to relate too, outside self-pity.

Boring.

Well I think you maybe got out of bed the wrong side this morning K ?

This is a personal introspective poem with much more skill and thought than any teen journal could possibly muster.

Maybe not to everybody's sensibilities but I do like it Robert.

Yeah I agree with that, bit like a bad hair day thingy or one of those watchamacalit days.

Cannot find any of Colin’s prose to compare with Roberts?
