To some
friends are like fashion
where you pick up the latest
style, cheap and easy, then
dump whatever
isn’t accepted by the masses
wanting to be noticed
but afraid to stick out

To others
friends are like accessories
there to give you flair, flavor
an entrance into the right world
changing them to match
the circumstantial outfit
where it’s not what you know
but who

For some
friends are shoes
mixing between painful and
not fitting quite right
beautiful, but blistering
to sturdy and comfortable
unattractive, but there for
the long haul
always out of balance

For me
friends are like style
individual, intimately
entwined with the person
until you can’t see one
without seeing the other
where, like diamonds,
they never go out of
because they are
