 Thoughts painted here..please take a walk with me

Like the rarest of treasures
Are the ones I call friends
When there is a wall
Of judgement around me
they stand beside me
With none
When the cruel whispers
Find my ears
Their voices are
Clear and kind
When the darkness begins
To close in
my mind cloudy
Those friendships
Are the faint light
I am not alone
My memory
Fails me often
My friends are patient
Being a loyal friend
To one who 
Lives in the dark
Takes special qualities
Most not easy
never popular
My friends are the ones 
Who stand true
Stand strong
Usually standing alone
When I shut myself away
I hear
Faint knocks
on my mind's door
From my friends
Don't go too far
Ever my friends
Will you be
In my heart
