Your confession 📇
In my hour of darkness 🌌
Instead of holding a lantern 🔦
To help light my way
With an open hand 👋 and open heart 💓
You ran the other way. 👟
“You were so negative and always down” you said….
To my painful silence.
What could I possibly say
To UN-do the horrible thing
you just admitted to?
When I needed a friend-
An umbrella in the rain ☔️
Coat over a puddle
Tissue in a room full of sneezing people
Doorman while carrying a tray of Starbucks cups
Penny when the total is 5.01. 💰
yourself not be there for me
Was I not fun enough?
Was I not accommodating enough?
Was I not generous enough?
I get it, I only bent over backwards 300 degrees, not the full
360 you required.
Here we are
On my birthday🎉nonetheless
And your excuse for not being there
All this time ⏰
Is because I was “too negative”?
Im so sorry I wasn’t smiling through
I can’t UN-hear what you just said.
I can’t UN-feel what you just made me feel.
My real mistake was not
Being there for you
It was expecting you to
return all those to me
The same respect.
That bridge 🌉is burning
And it is because
You have poured the kerosene. ⛽️
