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
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!
