To my dear friends...
It seems a long time since we've met,
Whether in person, or through the net...
I have a tale which is painful to tell,
Of how I disappeared down a well.
That was the day I sailed away,
To a different world in a different realm,
There was no magic, neither were there dreams,
Only sadness, fears, and silent screams.
Behind me, I shut the portal into that dark place,
I did not want you to see me in such disgrace,
I couldn't bare the thought of you knowing,
Of the million tears from me flowing.
And thus I removed myself from your sight,
But know, I missed you on countless nights.
And there beyond the reaches of light,
In the midst of my unhappy plight,
I had not forgotten the friendship we've shared,
I treasure it still, as I've always cared...
Any hurt I've caused, I did not ever intend,
I hope it's not too late for me to amend...
The no exchange of greetings or pleasant conversation,
No smiley faces or emoticons to halt the alienation,
Tis a tragic failure on my own part,
I pray you will not take this to heart.
You who showed compassion when it was in want,
For being warm-hearted and not nonchalant,
I want to thank you for being a dear friend,
I should not want our friendship to end.
Take care always...
This is me...the slug...who hides in a shell...(sometimes anyway)
