My broken friend

behind a wall so strong

built up over the years

made of others beliefs

when pain is better

than being numb

I hurt for him

A spirit so pure

Captured and tortured

Who could do this?

Why does this happen?

I want him to smile

But it's not my place

To make his day

Or to destroy the pain

But if it's me he'll open up to

So be it

I'm his rock

A safe haven

Someone who will keep

My broken friend

Safe from judgement

From hate

From the days end

Because you see

This friend of mine

I love him

In the purest possible way

I just want him to be okay
