Best Friend

Sometimes I wonder
what I did to make you leave

Was it the way my screams bleed
through the seams of all my broken dreams

Was it the way my mind blacked out
into a distant world
where I was a wire puppet
to the ventriloquist of muppets

Was it the fact that I was chronic
to the relapse of fading through
the emotions that I so strongly feel

Was it the fact
that I was just being me
or was it the fact
that you were just being you
 

Todays poetry contest submission was written by Savannah Massey.

 

Do you think it could possibly be one of the best new poems of 2013?
