This poem was inspired by a former friend. For those who have been so supported of my relationship with Jill, don't worry; Jill and I are fine, as is our relationship. ;-)


Not long ago, she said goodbye
Without even a reason why
She felt no guilt when day was nigh
She did not seem to care.

She broke a heart, fragile and true
One who did not have any clue
That when the light of day was through
There'd be sadness to bear.

She made her move and parted ways
Her heartless words formed quite a blaze
She went from someone earning praise
To someone lost and cold.

From her goodbye, her spirit plunged
Her mind and realm of sense expunged

She often wished she had not lunged
Toward words so brash and bold.

Yet, all the while, the heart she bruised
The soul she banished, hurt and used
Went through each day, rather amused
While finding opened doors.

The lesson should be very clear
Be kind to those who hold you near
For once they go and disappear
Karma will soon be yours.

Karma is something that we must consider with every action we do. What goes around, often comes around.
Take care and don't worry. I knew this wasn't about me!!
