Facebook Friends

She’ll grow out of that, they said
When she understands
Her little friend is in her head
They never will touch hands
When she goes to school and finds
Little friends for real
She will see the unreal kind
Cannot think or feel
And so I left my friend, pretend
And turned my face away
The special friendship had to end
With others I must play
But now the years have floated by
And I am old and scary
We are fast friends my friend and I
Though she’s ‘imaginary’
