There Are Some People

 

There are some people
we chance to meet,
who reach into our
souls so deeply,
claiming for themselves
all that’s there,
and casually going off
as if not a care.
Only, in a little while,
when nothing will
return their smile,
when no one else
can fill that void,
not pill, nor powder,
not drink, nor hoe,
they realize that
perhaps it was true,
they may have had
real feelings for you,
so they return
and beg to reclaim,
what you had yet
to refile or rename.
So, you let them back
into your soul,
and once again,
you’re feeling whole,
only to be, once again,
put on the shelf
as just a friend.
