Connections

Sometimes we need to expel, to divest,
Divulge.
Expunge.
For peace of mind.

Sometimes, burdens carried drain us.

Sometimes, it seems we would go mad;
except for friends.

Sounding boards;
echoes -
partners/pals/part-takers;
allies.
Compatriots;
(alter-egos);
buds.
Cronies;
contacts -
links - heart to heart;
when we are very lucky,
soul to soul.

Friends confirm.
They reaffirm.

They connect us - life to life
A lifeline, beautiful and sure.
