A sonnet of old friendship, slowing ripping apart until it finally ends with a suicide.
“We Were Friends”

We were friends not so long ago,
Despite how it seems as though a lifetime,
The distance between us continued to grow,
Struggling I craved to stop this rapid climb.
Opportunities there yet never taken,
Scared of disappointment in your response,
Chances of redemption now forsaken,
Because of my slow action and your renaissance.
I wish I would have done something, anything,
To help you this life endure.
But no, I learned there was nothing,
Death ensnared you with each whisper and every lure.
Though no words were spoken those last few a year,
It was only you, is only you, I evermore endear.
