No Quarter

I have heard it said
that in the end,
the silence of our friends
will far outweigh
the words of our enemies.
I hope that you can remember this
when surrounded
by people that claim to be your friend
but will stay silent
when this world
has wronged you.

  1. I have so many social friends and they speak relentlessly but I fear, as you say, that they will be very silent, when my need is loudest. On reflection, maybe it is best that they disappear as I would prefer they fall away to the distance when I will wish, in my most painful hours, for only the sincere, quiet but steadfast friends to remain.
