ode to m.n.

Location

i shouldn't be able to ask
for your companionship,
or your puppy-dog loyalty
but i do.

i shouldn't be able to ask
for your humor,
or your day-brightening anecdotes
but i do.

i shouldn't be able to ask
for your queries,
or those secrets locked deep inside your mind,
but i do.

i shouldn't be able to ask
for your favoritism,
or to be the one you seek after each unending day
but i do.

petty perhaps, but
i ask and i ask.

but, then, you gave me something
that I couldn't ask for.

i didn't ask for your solace, or a hand to hold
i didn't ask for your kindness,
or our mental synchronization.
but you gave it no problem.

your Friendship is paramount, and given for free,
no questions, no qualms.

i could never ask for someone like you
but luckily i never needed to.

c.v.
