i was too shy to ask you to be my friend

i was afraid you would laugh

or walk away

if i asked to be your friend


those were the days

before texting on a cell

or going on facebook

and asking to be a friend



back then i

missed chances to

to fall in love

or just have a friend

because i was afraid

to say the words

on the phone or

in person . . . those words,

can i be your friend?



it’s easier now

with texting

no one has to

have their feelings


and if someone says no

to a friend request

just simply look at

other photos

and send more friend requests

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
