about best friends


person who cradles your head when it is heavy with worry, sadness, loss.. someone you can turn to when it seems like there is nothing left, no hope, no point. Not everyone has a best friend, at least not a true best friend. I've been lucky enough to find a couple in my life, and I personally think that you don't need very many.

I've got a friend.. her name is Kristen. Sometimes I get upset with her, and sometimes I just want to shake her and ask why she thinks like she does, acts so stupidly. Why it is that she hurts herself so..

I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for the fact that she has something in her eyes, and there is something in the way she talks to me, the way she is so painfully honest. She dreams like no one I've ever known, and I swear to God she must be certifiably insane but I love her more than I've ever loved any creature that has walked the earth. I don't understand it, and I don't care to try.. she's just one of those people. I'd have to say she's redefined friendship in my eyes, I never thought you could be so close to someone without actually being "in love".

I've had few very good friends in my life, but I'm eternally grateful for the ones I have had. It seems that at the same time I lost one of my best friends, the only one I had for a time, I gained a group of even better ones. This is an interesting concept.
