we gossip
share clothes
share lip gloss
share secrets
hard day at work
drink wine
I encourage her
she makes a bad joke
I laugh with her
impossible dreams
I support her
boyfriend hurts her
cheats on her
disrespects her
leaves her
I comfort her

she forgives him.
and over and
over again

I pretend to understand her
I remind her how to smile
I pick up all the pieces
he shattered
put them back together
we laugh again

he hurts her
again and

she forgives him.

I help her
I love her
I hurt her
one time

she does not forgive me.
