My Friend Andi

Hey

Psst

I’ve got to let you know

I think I let you in

I think I’ll introduce-

The wonderful,

Enigmatic,

Enthusiastic,

Advantageous

Andi.

 

That’s my friend Andi.

Strongest boy I know.

And if he had a vagina, well,

we’d have a serious Womance

Noun: ‘Describing a strong and vibrant friendship between two straight women.’

 

Yep.

That’s us.

Me and Andi.

 

Different but completely the same

Through thick and thin

Through fear and blame

We’ve held each other;

Soothed fears and healed hearts

 

He still leaps

He still takes a giant step

 

Everytime someone pulls out his legs from underneath him

He

Just-

Keeps-

Swimming-

 

And if you have a question about Andi

Well I’m sure you could ask him;

But it’s be better to ask me.

 

Yep.

That’s me and Andi.

Andi and I.

My bro.

My bud.

My could-be womance.

My friend Andi.

 

Three cheers for the boy!

Justice is not queen

In love and in war

To live but not be seen,

Yearning, so forlorn

Writing about Love?

Thinking about Love

Knowing and learning about Love

Love-

Without definition

Without sign

Love-

With no intuition

The breath of a sigh-

Your love

      My love

                      Their love

                  Our love

None of us truly know “Love”.

Open Them Up

There’s a type of person-

I’m sure you know them;

1-

0r 2-

0r 3-

0r 4-

Who speak not, want not and need not:

Like a book on dusty shelf they lie

With closed hearts and minds

Fingers wrapped around each other

Lips pursed or limply lying;

shoulder stooped and round

or razor-back straight.

With closed pages,

broken binding,

and dusty fading words

they sit

in anticipation

waiting-

waiting-

waiting-

For they have a voice, heart, and mind;

they speak, want and need.

They feel and see and know.

So

pry open their hearts

like that dusty old tome

and read-

read-

read-

for they are hiding in their depths

adventures and secrets alike;

Things that you have never seen or heard before.

Open them up

and stop the door.
