Dear Sad Friend

What had betided you?

Your orbs so dark

And lucent in gleaming liquid –

Once that it had met people’s eyes,

The other second that had drifted

To invisibility.

Mistakenly bumped into each other

The next moment I flipped my hair

To catch sight of you;

Your footsteps fled apace

Out of sight.

I followed you to behold your face:

Abraded in unknown agony

That scars all over you

“What had betided you?”

You’ve got a dear friend here!
