Never Again

Life story on her arms
Tears dammed in her eyes
Her lips afraid to speak
Afraid to let me inside
So I wait

Texts me HEY at 3 am
Sit on her porch til dawn
Hides as he drives away
The problem is gone
So I go

Packs her bags one night
Soft knocks on the door
Tears flooding her face
Eyes fixed on the floor
So I hold

Sits still on the couch
My hand on her arm
Each scar has a story
She shares them all
So I listen

The walls all disappear
Few bricks just in case
Tall when she walks
A smile on her face
So I smile

That she confided in you is a great indication of her faith in your friendship and character. I'm happy for both of you, especially if she judged you correctly.

Once again, amazing. I have a friends that used to wear her emotions on her forearm as well. Be thankful she confided in you-you must be a great friend.
