Friendship short poem

If you are my friend you would always believe in what I say
We would bite from the same orange even if we know
That stones disappear and waters remain
Even if I read Heidegger and Kierkegaard and I dislike Confucius or Laozi,
Even if I value Hugo and Dostoyevsky and I am still outraged by Picasso
Even if I cry without a word very softly and I want sometimes
To play with you another Nine Men’s Morris with beans or lentils
Until night falls upon us and you will believe me again when I’ll tell you
About the black forest grown from too high dreams
And about the catacombs of the warrior ants.

Right now we stay together face to face at the round table
Somewhere at Stonehenge
Measuring the time necessary for light to run back and forth
Between me and you.
We both smile the same however much it hurts
Because the tears would divide us forever
Like the sword separating Tristan and Isolde
Same as all the others divided because they never betrayed
Not even for the sake of their love.

Have something to say about the poem?

I am from Romania, I write poems and haiku and sometimes I translate them into English. My poems and haiku were published in various e-zines or poetry journals and magazines in print in Romania or abroad. Poetry is for me like champagne poured in a mug. I discovered this site and I can say that I found many good poems here.

Friendship short poem

A bond unbroken, A promise so strong, Tested several times, but still it exists fighting all the odds. Grew up as classmates sharing each other’s part, Laughing and giggling we spent our days together, Unnecessary fights, continuous leg pulling, arguments,

Friendship – An Oasis

Friendship   An Oasis prose poem

Friendship is an oasis that is bound from the north by eternity’s wrinkle-free forehead, by life’s arid desert of mishaps from the south, by liberty that is in the hands of those who give it in order to have it
