Friend at Heart

Now, I hate her.

More than the word hath meaning

I see in her.

A mind so cunning

divides her from her pain;

Haunting,

Pushing her into a corner

so deep and dark that

even iceberg hearts

all look the same.

And yet, I love her.

As sister be sister

in rain or sleet,

and hearts bound once

leaves strings until end.

The sight of her breaks me-

but heals me,

and forever will be-

My friend.
