The Friend-Seeker

SHE longed for friends, but had been burned,
 as sometimes girls in packs are cruel;
 she cautiously reached out again,
 connection, for her heart, was fuel

BUT love and friendship come with risk:
 the careless slights that still leave marks,
 and flashes of vindictiveness
 with flecks of her own blood among

 the sparks
