My Best Friend by Tanvi Gupte

I enjoy being alone but I hate being lonely
So I sit and i wait for a notification to pop up on the screen
For a smile to break out across my face when I see your name
For that pain of happiness to spear through my chest
For our never ending conversations

Because sometimes you’re the only person I'll talk to
And I wouldn't change a thing
Because my heart is addicted to you
And I wouldn’t have it any other way

Because for me, those late night calls
And the even later night messages
Are small beads of light in the otherwise dark space
That I call my head

And you’re the only thing that lights it up.


Tanvi is someone who really enjoys poetry and has been writing for a couple of years. They are entering 9th grade.
