TT20 to 441
and I could text and call
to my heart's content.

But it is not content.

I make friends easily enough.
Hold them close for a few months
and lose them to apathy.

Is it who I am
that causes them to regain distance?
Or am I missing some essential knowledge -
people come and go and maybe ditching friends
is just a social norm that I've yet to accept.

I prefer to hoard them in my heart
but one by one they crack their way out
like a chick from a shell,
leaving me stuck in a lonely hell.
