Losing Friends

One lesson learned at age 29
is that friends leave and they lie
to your face/behind your back
they strike you on your worst days
Be yourself, 
true friends hold no negativity
towards you or against you. 

I wish my friends lived closer
talked more often
met at coffee shops
and karaoke bars. 

I miss that. 
Terribly.
