The Brunt of Friendship

Mental Health issues can destroy your life

They can make you want to kill yourself

To contemplate the pills and the rope

The river and the bridge

The bullet and the train

Over and over again

What people don’t put into writing

Is deceitful

The loss the tragic periods of despair

The need for a friend

The end of the time for ending relationships

And the start of the time of none

Which doesn’t appear in any books

When you no longer are on the pile

Of which

You have nothing

To say.
