On the face of the earth walk men ,
Men who befriend you ,
In the real and virtual world ,
Requesting u for friendship that comes with a click of a button ,
Anything but friendship ,
Anything but love ,
They talk , chase you like you are some celebrity ,
Flattering your eyes , your photoshopped pictures …
Everything that runs skin deep ,
And then they vanish ,
Just like they had come ,
From above the surface …
Like dry flakes from your winter skin ,
They can offer nothing to your mind , to your soul ,
They are just those shots of vodka u take on a tiring day …
Let them go like leaves in the Autumn !
And then there are some ,
Very few ,
Who don’t beg for friendship or love ,
Who build it ,
Over time , with memories , with trust ,
with actions that speak louder than words ,
They are the ones who will smile n lift u up when u r in muddy waters ,
The ones who are just there , right there ,
They will rub every stone to enlighten rhe lost spark in you ,
They aren’t skin deep ,
They run deep into your soul ,
Spreading like galaxy in universe ,
Filling your voids ,
Being a part of your struggles ,
A companion in your journey ,
A partner in your madness,
With an unflinching faith in you ,
Cherish them , for they will make you conquer the world.
That’s what you are to me .
Thank you for being what you are . I am so proud of you .
P.s to readers – these are the ones who will help u arrange parties to all the people who only join u once u r successful n also to the ones who pointed fingers at you . Cherish them too ! They are your fuel and propellers to victory .
