X Box Friend

My only true friend that has never lied to me
Has only brought me happiness

Her skin as white as paper
Her eye glows green all day and all night

I play with her for hours
             And hours...

Her limbs in my hands
             Removed from her body

On the weekends, my friends may also come to play with her
Her other three limbs also in their hands

We play with her together
Staring at her, without a thought of time

The noises she makes tell us she is tired,
She does not sweat, but she is getting hot

It has been at least four hours,
We are also getting tired
               ...Our fingers hurt

We stop to play with her
To let her rest

That ends our fun
At least for today

My one true friend...
          My Xbox 360
