The Better Friend

Written by: Jennifer Ratcliffe

I always switch out
and take talking
to my skull.
In and in
the music seems to win,
but through solitude you don't disturb.
The best is the one who saw their reflection
as needs for
and similarities a plus.
The worst is the one who saw similarities
and benefits to
and means of gain.
The better is what's left from a fall,
the better is who stays after it all.
When the relationship hits the target
and you're left just knowing the game,
let loosing be loosing,
and finishing be to come.
The best and the better
are the friends that are never done.

They warm your hands whilst you try to keep beating.
