WHEN FRIENDS BECOME FOES

WHEN FRIENDS BECAME FOES
Once upon a time we had  played and 
chuckled in unison
Spouting the sound in a sound friendship
We had shook hands together before
We ate and drank together
We slept together rubbing in the warmth of 
the day 
And the cool breeze of the night with a single 
lappah 
  
Tides and market, comes and go
Time timed timelessly, we had forgot so soon
The song we used to sing together 
We remember no more in our eyes
The memory of our bosom friendships 
 
Thought split apart while fight frightened the 
friendship
Lovers now lives lonely
While our thoughts now were made in a 
thunderstorm
The very face that brings smile 
Now frowns like a the face warmth by the 
heat of a dead slap
Flying away like an eagle
Seeing only in the eyes : the redness of the 
white
