Short Poems about Friends

Being friends is about sharing our lives with others. There are some aspects of our lives that require that we spend a lot of time together or a lot of writing to help convey our feelings. Other times sharing only a few words are more than adequate. It is not always the long conversation that conveys the deepest feelings. Sometimes, longer modes of expression may seem redundant and lacking in profundity. Putting just the right combination of words on paper in a succinct style may just hit the spot.

    • By Kayla Rae Pich
    • Published: May 2015

    Friends...
    They're the few people who accept silence over conversation.

    You don't feel the need to second guess thoughts or measure words.
