i need to have
this moment here
to see that everything has not changed

i need to know
that you, and I
are strong and happy and close

i need to hear
you laugh and laugh
and see it all the way to your eyes

i know the truth
sometimes the tears
are close behind the joy

but if we can laugh together
we'll be okay

but increasingly complicated
loving someone
and hating what they do

the wounds of a friend

Forgetting the possibility
that all at once
the dagger could strike again

the wounds of a friend
