Spencerian: Friendship

I used to think friendship was
sleepovers and play dates.
Now I know it’s not.
Friendship is three in the morning talks
about what happened the day before
and why the hell you’re still awake.
Friendship is three in the afternoon
laughing so hard you’re on the floor at a
corny joke for the third time that day.
Friendship is sitting there eating in
silence because you would rather eat
than talk (and they would too).
Friendship is love in the strangest ways
when all else is lost.
