Ending dialog among friends
She: The linens lay on top the bed,
Make it yourself, is all they said.
He: The echo of his words had fled,
“For you I washed, and aired the bed.”
S: The room is empty, they've gone away.
Entertain yourself, we cannot stay.
H: The rest were busy fixing food,
They all pitched in, a busy brood.
S: OK, I say, I live alone,
These things I can do on my own.
H: So join right in and be at ease,
We’re a family, if you please.
S: But I have things that I must do,
Why drive so far to be with you.
H: So be with me and join right in,
Or ask my friends about my sins :D
S: I have expenses, as do you
but share them not when they are due.
H: I share your expenses, this I do!
Yet what’s the price of friendship, true?
S: But still I long for former times,
when the princess in your eyes was mine.
H: Those times of giving now replaced:
By your expected dues, disgraced.
S: Exploring life was then our joy
and compromise, a toy.
H: Till compromise became a strain
Which feelings, actions, would restrain.
S: I sense the burden I've become
yet I am not sure why,
H: Our "contract" strangles as it binds.
Its no safety net. Demanding blinds.
S: I gave you all that I could give
and maybe too much more.
H: What I received from your free will
Most valued is love and friendship still!
S: Be free, my love, eternal friend,
I'll not hold you back
But tell me sweet,
What has become of the magic that we lack?
H: The answer, love, is not so strange:
Look up, not down, and you’ll perceive
That love lives in the rainbow’s range
In magic, not things, when you believe.
Author's Notes: We are all blind at times, when we confuse the person in front of us, with our heart's creation. It is simply one of the pitfalls of the human condition.
