The prompt for the week is FRIENDSHIP at Acrostic Only.

It is impossible to say all about this in just 10 lines. But I have tried to capture the essence of it in first poem. 

The second one is in a dedication to a very dear friend of mine. To the sloth bear!

Forever seems a time too little. In
Retrospect, I wonder
If I completely understand 
Everything that transpired, then and now.
Never ending love, undying
Devotion, unrelenting trust
Soothing advice, strong shoulders.
Happiness or sorrow, never ever was
I alone. All along, you tagged.
Perish with me, only shall the feeling of "us".


"Forgive me, will you?"
Repeated he, for the 4th time.
I pretended never to have heard
Echoes of the remorse.
Never ever has a slap been so hard.
Dead inside, the feelings strong.
"Stop," I say to him. 
"Have you realised
I don't ever want to think, ever
Pretend it never happened?"

It's difficult to summarize friendship especially in a short acrostic. You have accomplished it in 2 very commendable and contrasting ways! Both are excellent! The first one is straight and simple while the second one makes you think... Loved them both!

Two different types of friendship.

I relate to both of the, but I love the first one better.

Very good Rashi.
