Unexpected Comforts


 
Very young
I came to you
As a child, your with who I played

Growing up, your who I sat with
You'd watch every sunset without a choice

I told you endless stories
You speechlessly listened to each

You heard every dream, wish and worry of mine

All without a blink
Without a single distraction
And without regret

How you defeat pain
Made me wonder and annoyed both

Most of all
How nothing ever phased you
Angered me so

So there I’d sit with you
Afternoon and day

Accompanied only by the crows
It was my heaven

Or so I'd thought

I desperately wanted you to help me

I needed you to take away the pain

I expected so much from you
Especially after all this time

All I could do was react with anger

I asked you to run with me
Some place we could be free to live life

Thinking you would want to leave to
It angered me when you only sat speechless once again

I was taken far from you
Ripped from you more like it

My best friend, my vent
My silent buddy

Until now I didn’t know you as anything less

But now I know you finally as
A scarecrow, only.
