Never wanted to lose

She loved those stories she shared

She loved that feeling that, he cared

She loved those little fights

After which she apologised and hugged him tight

She loved those little walks with him

She had that best friend who would always be there when she crimps

But she had that fear that people would judge her

And maybe her best friend dithers

Maybe she wasn’t that good

Because she wasn’t the only one with whom he shared food

She was just friends with him

But the society would not accept that thing

And the fear of him having more friends gave her despair

Because she never wanted to lose the best friend who cares.
