Benefit of a friend



Like the end of rain
that sweet smell
puddles dying slowly
in from the edges

You lying there
asking nothing more than listening
gentle with sudden rain bursts
new hurts on old ones
not yet healed

Smoking and
muting the television
being there for you
I broke my own slumber

Months of want
of slipping
and hiding
waiting to hear
and this fog lifting

How sweet
when you think
I am okay
