A quick Valentine

Day before Valentine's.

The day before Valentine's day
you called me. You were not yourself or
so I could tell. And you whispered
the words so quietly it was if you
didn't want the walls to hear you,
didn't want God or your own breath to
hear you. Confiding in me the day before
Valentine's day.
And then we cried - held together only by
a bad phone line and our hearts held close
in love and in friendship, the day before
Valentine's day
The day before Valentine's day.

backstory: my best friend called me the day before Valentine's day and said he wanted to kill himself. I wrote this for him, as well as for myself to help me deal with my feelings. Hope you like it.
