~Broken Circle~

I woke in the night,
thoughts tumbled and tossed,
and headed straight for the keyboard
before they were lost.

She dumped me like trash,
and never even looked back.
How does someone forgive
a heartless person like that?

She was not the friend
I thought her to be.
Others tried to tell me,
but I was blind and could not see.

I wish now that I had seen
what was there all along.
She was so very selfish,
and to trust her was wrong.

My heart so filled with pain,
I thought I would surely die.
Now I know she wasn't worth it;
because a friend wouldn't make me cry.

I feel so used and abused,
and she said she never would.
But these feelings are real,
so I really think she could.

I have no regrets now really,
and my wishes for her are few.
I have only emptiness in my heart,
for the friend I thought to be true.

The words that I type on these here keys,
were torn from inside of me,
for the gift I have for writing
was heaven-sent and free.

The circle was broken,
and the beginning had an end.
The friendship that we had is over
and will never, ever mend.

May 2003


Author's Notes:

A rewrite for a short-lived friendship.
Memory serves to remind me that
it's hard to know who to trust and
allow into your heart when you
have had your heart broken so harshly.

Diane, I forgive you...

I know how badly you have been hurt by friendships in the past.
As you know how I have been hurt also. Our friendship is built on pure trust, because we both had to learn to trust our friendship hearts again.
Very beautifully expressed Sis.
Love Ya.....................Tracy
