The Cure For A Lost Friend
by Saunders Sylvester  Shen

A drop of care, a cup of love
Then simmer atop the fiery stove
A pinch of trust, cloves of hopes, too
Then let the concoction brew

The man destitute of contentment
As he stands in confinement
From the constant torment of society
As he stirs the potion into anxiety

Intention of suppressing such distraught
Battle of mutuality which he fought
The agony, the lament, hunger
Feasting upon existence?s blunder

Strengthening the savage beast inside 
Malevolence grows by the very night
The only remedy is this potion
To revert his most abysmal condition

The blistering tonic he ingested
Defeat, the beast conceded
Yet, astray in field of desolation
Aimless walks subsequent to the concession

Realized nothing could fill a close friend?s shoe
The anguish and torment ceased to undo
Learned friendships? obligation in existence
As the man mourns in hysterical reminiscence
