My Special Friend, The Icecream Man

Poem By Brandi Young

My friend and I have a special sort of relationship.
Everyday between 1pm and 7 he comes to play with me.
No, not in that way.
You sick freaks.

When I hear his loud child friendly song,
And when I see that big truck,
The one decorted in polk-a-dots,
I get all happy in my pants, and do a little dance.

Everyday I ask my special friend very politely,
'Mr. Icecream man, Sir., may I please have some candy cigarettes and an icecream cone? '
He says to me 'you sure can, sugar! '
I hand him the money and he hands me my treats.

Then we start with are thank you's and goodbyes.
It's quite a bittersweet moment.
Bitter because he has to go,
But sweet because I get to eat my treats.

24 hours later
The ritual repeats and repeats and repeats
Until that faithful day when it gets to cold and winter starts.
I really will miss that song and his big truck and them candy cigarettes.

Well I shouldn't be sad, I should lift my chin and smile,
Cause I know that he will be back again next summer,
But in the mean time I can't wait for tomorrow,
To see my special friend, the icecream man.

A true friend is always there for you
A true friend will help you no matter ther problem
A true friend is like a sister, she knows your better, than you know yourself

Are You All Right?

They keep asking me this question
I don't know how to answer

They say it again

Burn

I burn into ashes from your hurtful words
Everything you said blinded me
I have to burn myself to numb the pain
Bursting into flames

Left Alone

I'm alone once again
No one to talk to, but myself
Crawl into bed and cry
That seems to be the only thing i know

Cried For The Last Time

This is the last tear that I will shed
I have finally come to realize that I tried to make you love me
I have cried for that last time
No longer will i chase after you
