Never Friend

She was a song I’d never heard before
Replaying in my head
She was all the words I’d never said

An unhurried rollercoaster
Suspended in a continuous twist
Never went dancing, never been kissed

A pleasure to be around, she was not
But I clung to her tight, that thunderstorm kite
Knuckles turning ever more ghost white

She was not a friend, nor kindred spirit
Never loved nor cared for me
But this I could never see

Forty years, she will never leave
Drags me into waters deep
Grinning as she smothers my dreams
