Often dream of meeting childhood friends,
some now absent, others scarcely present;
a café, a bar, lunch, dinner, a coffee date,
every single night of late
and into the morning without warning,
tossing and turning.

Gave up searching for replacements,
every maladroit attempt
full of paranoid delusions,
punctuated by loud silences;
a whispered goodbye to my best friend,
now just a memory on a cold table.

Drowning thirsty in the middle of an ocean,
but everyone's swan song is rattled alone,

Swan Song
I've come to that point in my own life. I still have dear old friends and find it difficult at times to make new ones - certainly with the close bonds I had made while I was a younger man. Perhaps that is because my mind is more organized - and less open. Not truly a fault and I still learn - actually I learn more easily now, with less to lose or defend. Very compelling. You have a new fan.
