When did things change?
How did something so beautiful,
Turn in to something so ugly
When did a journey of friendship
Become a matter of disrespect
Mistrust and anger?
Why did this
Come to a place
That is unhealthy for all involved?
Because more than one
Relationship will be
Affected by a misunderstanding,
That no one seems interested in fixing.
I sit here
Feeling like I have lost something
And I have
But I have no ideas
With the repair
Of this situation,
Because words and thoughts
Got us into this mess
And if we let it, it will keep us here.
If I could show you
The reflection of my heart
You will see I hold no ill will to you
However if you cannot see that,
I cannot force you
And my heart must be protected
At all costs
So I must remind myself
Not everyone who comes into your life
Is forever, sometimes it’s only seasonal
But the lesson is for a lifetime.
