Eggshells and Tiptoes

Will she be in a good mood or will it be bad?
 Will she be overjoyed today, or will she be sad?
This yo-yo effect has me in such turmoil, 
 Never knowing if I can be myself or if its time to recoil.

Sinking into an ever growing black abyss, 
 Its the upbeat, smiling, wise ass that I really miss.
Take a pill to make you relax and be stress free, 
 Take another one for Bi-polar and you're a zombie. 

I know life sucks right now, with stress at an all time high.
 It doesn't help that someone left holes in you and now you don't even try.
Haven't we been through enough the last three or four years?
 Do you really have to be so depressed and add to my fears?

I miss my friend, who smiled more, laughed and always had a joke.
 Its sad to see a crumpled, lifeless, hollow shell who is broke.
What can I do to get you out of this deep, dark cave?
 If we don't get you some help, I fear its an early grave.

I'd gladly take back the girl who makes me laugh so hard I pee, 
 Being so silly that tears run down my face and I can't breathe.
I miss you, come back and don't be sad, moody and terribly glum.
 What will it take, sexy men, kids, Marilyn Manson or a bottle of rum?

I know you think I'm mean and I just get irritated to complain.
 But that's not the case, to see you miserable causes me great pain.
Just tell how to make it better, tell me how to make it go away please!
 I want my friend back, I'm begging and pleading, I'm on my knees!

    Friends come and go and the real one stays. We lose a lot in this life, and when we care of what we have lost, we deeply want it back. I want them back too. Fantastic write, Love, Sami.

    Amazing profession of friendship and fear of losing someone who is unpredictable. What a good friend you are, Aleera, to care so much and stand by her side through good times and bad. We should all be blessed to find such a devoted friend. Excellent poem! Love, Carolyn

    It makes me cry to know how I've hurt you I'm struggling to get out of a dark deep hole it's like quicksand sucking me deeper and I'm gasping for breath. Just be patient I'm trying and one day I'll break free! Just know that you and the kids are my life and all I want is to make you all happy and laughing! I truely love you sis! I'm sorry my mental stuff is so terrible but it will get better! I promise!
