Words unspoken hang in the air
Flames from an unapologetic wrath
Burn freely with the wind blowing
Causing the bridges to burn hastily.

Fear of vulnerability rises up slowly
Like a phoenix rising from the ashes
Of a bond once held together by trust,
Now floating up in a million pieces.

What was once unbreakable & strong
Flies uncontrollably in the fervent night sky
Without the foothold of foundation
Only accompanied by the tears we cry.

Was there ever a hint of hope
Before the fires began burning?
Could the bridges be saved
With the extinguish of an apology?

The friction was too vigorous to stop
Once that first flame lit up
Never were we fireproof
As the lies began to peel off.

So ends the tale of epic friends
Hiding behind masks afraid to trust
What was once eternal now burns
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

  1. That was a bit sad…and beautiful. Sadly beautiful? Beautifully sad? Whatever; Either way, it was superb.



  2. I had to go through this recently, but it is probably bothering the other person a hell of a lot more than me (I’m not bothered by it at all). You can only take so much before you realize that sometimes just because you’ve known someone for a long time doesn’t mean they should still have the privilege to be in your life.
