Enchanting Friends

Floating alone
In a wasteland of white -
No one, no thing to be found in sight.

From faery on loan
She conjured a friend
A beast with whom time she could spend.

How her days shone
With a pal by her side -
She had no reason anymore to hide.

The hours had flown
With sweet joyous play
She flopped on its back and it took her away.

The tired, old crone
Before falling asleep
Said, 'Will you be mine? for good? for keeps?'

Faery couldn't condone
A bind so contrary
For magical cures are all temporary.

Again on her own
Her heart broken and tossed
She felt as though she'd always be lost.

Through tears and moans
She heard one inquire
"I have a tissue, might you require?"

So she was shown
In good times or poor
A real, true friend is worth far more.

PS: Have a joyous and safe New Year's celebration, and may health, success, and happiness find you in 2011!

Sadly, the 'charity' behind the benefit this post was supporting, the Superhero Epilepsy Combat Syndicate, is a sham. The leader, Epileptic Dreddmor, raised an estimated $500 on behalf of the Epilepsy Foundation from benefits and direct donations over the course of several months. Unfortunately, no money ever made it to the Epilepsy Foundation. When pressed, she admitted this and later it was discovered all the money was gone and she had used it for her own interests.

Many generous people donated their time, items, and money in an attempt to help the Epilepsy Foundation. One person's selfish actions do not diminish the good intentions of those she took advantage of, and I applaud every one of the creators and kind people who tried to support what they believed was a worthy cause.

As for me, I learned a great lesson: never put efforts into something that isn't 100% transparent and honest. If something smells fishy, it is fishy.

I apologize for my association with the S.E.C.S. and urge everyone to be wary of the level of support they show this group and it's leader.
