Tempers flared, our words hurt as
Our tongues lashed shameful insults
Faith destroyed as trust was broken
Others more important and the safety of a friendship
Tarnished by words.
A poison of words hurt both
We licked our wounds.
Bandaged ourselves up and went on with our lives
Were you feeling victorious after such a battle?
Did you hurt as I did?
Did it feel good to throw a friendship away?
Or perhaps it was not as important to you as it was to me?
Were you as lost and as broken as I?
Did you long to talk to me as I longed to talk to you?
How do we move on from this?
Is there a way of getting back what we lost or did we push all of that away?
Is there too much hurt and mistrust now?
Where is the friendship we had before?
Is the road back too difficult
Covered with thorns and weeds of places long forgotten
Can we forge through and find our way back or become lost once again
On the road to recovery.
