Guilty

First-I do not deserve this!

What a strange word- deserve.
Who decides?
When does a spontaneous moment of anger
become an eternity of disappointment?

First- I pissed some people off.

Second- What did you do?

First- I let my emotions rule.

Second- I cannot punish you for that.

First- I will punish myself forever.

Second- Why do we not make friends?

First- Because I can only be your friend when you tell me you do not love me.

Second- I….can’t.

First- Then we will never be friends, only lovers that cannot be friends.
(Gerry Aldridge 2017)
