I didn’t think our friendship would last
So I was shocked when you kept calling
after we didn’t work together.
You told me you wanted to keep in touch
To still be friends
That our friendship would be a real one.
I pretended that it didn’t matter
You told me you loved me
You told me you’d never leave me.
I told you I was fine without you
I told you I understood why you were leaving.
Going deep in these poems is making me figure out things that I hadn’t completely faced on my own. I plan on going back to writing actual blog posts to go along with #shewrites2016 tomorrow, so we’ll go back to our originally scheduled programming then. The poetry still will be part of it, but I need more prose in my life too.
