my mom

thinks you're a good

influence on me

my friend says, pretending not to be upset that her mom thinks

she needs someone to 

steer her into the right path

like her own dreams and thoughts, beliefs and opinions aren't enough.

it's strange to think

that it would only take 




to crack that illusion.

and we wouldn't be friends anymore 

and our sleepovers would amount to 

that one time my friend narrowly escaped a demon's grasp

my grasp

the grasp of a girl who actually cares about school and learning and books.

two little words, and

they will never see


like that.
