My Long Best Friend

Anthropomorphic poetry —

My long best friend and nemesis

Whom I have loved for many years –

But who a fickle heart displays

To tease me as she does —


Through long depression, years of hurt,

She’d touch me when I would touch her;

And I would like to think that, still,

It is the way it ever was


The decades go, my long best friend:

The tunes we think will never end

They leave our fingers and our ears

And melt into the wilting years


And loyalty goes unremarked

Until at last, it all goes
