Imaginary Friends

Luke Skywalker. Luke be my friend.
I wanted to be friends with the boy
with saber-sharp far-sight, he who could gaze
steady at setting binary suns. I was dry enough.

Jaime Sommers. Jaime be my friend.
Much more valuable than six million
dollars is a friend who leaps with bionic
charm and cares. I heard enough.

El-li-ot. Elliot be my friend.
I wanted to be Elliot. I wanted even more
for Elliot to be my friend. Was I E.T.
in this nocturnal fear? I was alien enough.

Buffy Anne Summers. I want to be Buffy.
To be surrounded by darkness, one girl
in all the world, to be the Slayer,
for the world and my friends. I bled enough.

Naruto Uzumaki. I want to be a jinchuriki
to a jinchuriki to an angry inner fox,
Multiple tails to save me from friendlessness,
anger and apathy, unwillingness to help. I ignore enough.

Yikes. Truly not one of my best.

Tomorrow is another day…
