Poem: Illusion of Friendship

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Illusions of friendship is a poem about how our friendships need tending to just like the flowers in the Spring. If there is a problem you should acknowledge it. Don't try muddling through with no resolve. Use open communication and honesty.

There is only one thing better than making a new friend, and that is keeping an old one.

— Elmer G. Letterman

Illusions of Friendship


Like a mouse taunting a cat
emotions hang on a string,
wanting to solve this maze
without hurt,
hoping distant words
speak loud in your heart.

When a flower grows in Spring,
tending to deadheads
promotes new growth,
friendship must be seasoned,
illusions left behind,
renewing strength
through communication
creates a strong bond.

A Sweet Friendship

refreshes the soul

— Proverbs 27:9
