#5 Poetry shared among close friends is like a scented candle from Sweden

I have this friend who I have known since I was 9, she is amazing. I can give her one look and she will know what it means, it's a speechless understanding. It is incredibly special. Also she is extremely talented, here is a poem she wrote several years ago, I really like it, so I thought I would share it :)

Truth that burns its way out our mouths,
that tortures us as it waits to be spoken,
that awakens in our tears as we cry alone
and leaves us naked in our beds.
That is the truth
that inspires,
that liberates,
that redeems.
That is what makes a man.
