Immerse

Surround yourself with oceans
You learn not to sink
Surround yourself with opinions
You learn how to think
Surround yourself with danger
You learn to be brave
Surround yourself with positivity
You start to crave
Surround yourself with happiness
You learn to heal
Surround yourself with love
You learn to feel
Surround yourself with darkness
You miss the light
Surround yourself with poetry
You begin to write

Ad for a friend

I'd love a bit of company
after a long tiring day,
just a friend talking to a friend,
With never enough things to say
I'd rant and rave and laugh and share
To my confidante
He'd listen to me quite amused
And then talk all he wants
We'd converse about most random things
From religion to karma
A no holds barred kind of talk
No strings attached, NO drama
We'd yack and yack the whole night through
Getting sleepier each hour
Till someone finally nods off
Or a battery runs out of power
And I'd go to sleep incredibly happy
Because the soul craves conversation
And he'd be the perfect antidote
To this nightly depravation.
