Invisible Friend

Author: Rifka Bose /

As i sit here all alone amidst these stark walls with a feeling of being totally bereft, i suddenly feel a presence, a feeling hard to describe. I just know you've come, coz you are the only one who arrives unannounced especially at times when i feel so lost.

Oh i wish you were real, i wish, but alas, my invisible friend, you can only but listen to my woes. I wish you'd talk back and tell me your thoughts, i wish we could go for a long walk and bicker and snigger. 

At times like these of total gloom, i really wish you came alive in this room...


Don't we all just need that someone at that point of total despair but sadly i think most us have to just rely on our invisible friend...
