I Once Had a Friend

by Gerard Lebel

I once had a friend
on whom I depended
to comfort me through
the darkest of times.

I once had a friend
in whom I surrendered
my heart, my secrets,
my poetic rhymes.

I once had a friend
who cast me aside
choosing drugs over dreams
which began to fizzle.

I once had a friend
who overdosed and died
abandoning our kinship
that was destined to sizzle.

I once had a friend
Who taught me to soar…
I once had a dream
that dwells in me no more.
