A letter to my friends

I want to be around people who make me feel good,
Heart stops,
Not a thought.
I want to be around people who make me happy,
Can't breathe,
My head gets too sappy.
I want to be around people who smile when I stutter,
My heart flutters,
I have goose bumps on my skin,
Because I've found people who love me for who I am within.
I want to be around people who I click,
I can tell my ticks,
Simply their aura is my fix.
I want to be around people who understand, 
Won't have to pretend,
Know it'll be okay in the very end. 
I need to be around people who are real,
Say what they feel,
Won't have to second-guess.
They save me the stress.
I want to be around people who are my true friend,
Have back until the end,
Real ones understand.
You comprehend?

Truth be told,
I don't need anyone else.
Still got myself.
But when we're in each other's company,
We're at peace.
