Thanks for the friendship
Its means more than a lot
But if you want absolution
Thanks, but I'd rather not.

You've made a big mess
Left decisions out to rot
You want me to look away
Thanks, but I'd rather not.

You seem to say one thing
With truth seldom sought
Should I ignore all the facts?
Thanks, but I'd rather not.

All the signs point to failure
This future should be fought
You want to cling to the past
Thanks, but I'd rather not.

You dragged me into your life
Wanting friends you haven't got
You want to prolong the pain
Thanks, but I'd rather not.

So I'll take the stand I need
Maybe I'm wrong to take a shot
All you want is lies in smiles
Thanks, but I'd rather not.
I was annoyed. Someone in my life made a move that just didn't sit well with me. So what's the better route? Lie and say "Cool, I'm totally in agreement with your awful decision!" Or do I make an actual stand and talk to them as a friend should talk with them, truthfully and from the heart? Of course, I wrote a poem first, because I'm sad like that, but the next move is in the works.

for a simple poem, this hits the spot. beautifully written with painful truth. sometimes even poems can only be so blunt, when it comes from the heart.
sometimes more words just make it more ugly, more difficult.

you truly gotta keep writing, no matter what. love ya.

Thanks! The funny things about these poems, is that whether or not the subject of said poem works out, I feel much better after writing these.

Stand up for what you believe in. Regardless of the consequences. Honesty is more valuable.

I can feel your dislike for this situation in your words. It actually sounds like my thoughts only a few days ago. Good luck to you.

Thanks, Wonder. I don't know if I write art, but I sure write therapy for myself. Same good luck to you!

You are very welcome.

As long as you gain something from your writing, that is all you can ask for. What better result than lifting burdens?

Very true. Do you remember when you were a kid and life's concerns had not yet revealed themselves? What a surprise the real world was.

Everyday is me trying to be a kid again. Of course, I don't want to be as short as I was then.

You understand then. Haha. Yeah, I guess I wouldn't want to be that short again either. I want the special treatment though. :D
