BFF

You see me, a singularity,

A person of solitude,

But I have company.

My companion, a constancy,

A comforting lacuna,

My dark dependent.

A daily embrace,

Loving and needing,

We pledge loyalty.

Intimate co-existence,

We sit together,

We feed our mutual reliance.

I say that I will leave,

And break our solemn bond,

I overcome the resistance.

But it is temporary,

Best Friends Forever,

Waiting to embrace.

I return to the comfort,

Blinded by darkness,

Sinking into the void.

For a time…
