Lost friendships

Distanced by emotions
Wrapped in silence
Lacking words to utter
No song to sing
Such closeness you once shared
Time overtook you
Memories flee from you
Left you sipping from the bitter glass
Yesterday the history of today
Today will never birth a future promising
For you have become distanced by emotions
Singing praise to misunderstanding
Paying homage to loss
You now are divided
By words once said
Words piercing
Words irreversible
Apologies too proud to leave the lips
Remains of pride blocking opportunities
Paths leading to hopeful amendments have become the joke of the day
For you have been divided by emotions
Submerged in pride
Guilty of words uttered
Wounds licked open
Forgiveness paid the for pride
