Dark Shadows (Old Friend)

Poetry by Maggie Thayer

You
It’s always been,
It will always be,
You.

Talented,
Strong,
Shy,
Amazing,
Beautiful,
You.

Don’t lie to me.
You
know what you’re doing.
You
know what you want.
You
will always be perfect in my eyes.
You
with all your faults will always be, to me.
You
no matter how hard you try, couldn’t get me angry at
You.
No matter what
You
do, I would always be helpless in stopping
You.

And that’s why it hurts so much.

You

Pain,
Suffering,
Loss,
Heart break,
You.

You.
Spiral out of control.
Wander helplessly with people that only bring out the worst.
You
know what you’re looking for,
But don’t know where it is
Or
Where to start.

Talented,
Strong,
Shy,
Amazing,
Beautiful,

You.
