Poem Titled: FRIENDSHIP

Last Updated on July 7, 2022 by Joshua Isibor

You graced my invitation
I never doubted your veracity
With pledges of undying loyalty
Our acquaintances soon ripened into friendship

I was dazzled by your exploits
Your achievement filled pages
I said “hello”
Your “hi” enticing

I wanted true friendship
You gave only friendship
The lure of your advice
Ensured that my vagrancy was always within bounds

I confided in you
To lead me to a battlement
Since we recite the same bead
Uttering the same creed

This knowledge is gnawing my heart
I was blind to your faults
Henceforth
I will scan and sieve your advice

Your advice
You gave meaning with a sort of polish and refinement
With a flagging interest, I followed
I have inured myself to the heat of the sun

I can’t live my normal bidding
I never saw it forthcoming
I agitate for a redress
Which is our separation

My spirit is brutalized
Here I am
Eyes gelid with tears
I watch with sheer helplessness
My willpower overpowered

There’s a diffusion
Instead of fusion
A threat
Instead of treatment.
