Not Friends...Just Former Lovers.

Let's not be friends- just former lovers.



L-over has the word over in it,

and fri-end has the word end,

love when it is reversed

becomes simply evol,

and should be shunned,

You cannot easily

re-like someone

who has been so

intimate with you,

there is no erasing

the depth such a

friendship took you to.

loneliness is a buoy

chained to the bottom of what was

tossed by waves of doubt

and going mowhere fast.

The chasm it leaves is

too wide to bridge by merely

being friends again.

you must fill that vast space with memories

then find another passageway to evolve into love,

and hopefully prevent the end in friend

and the over in lover.

from re-occuring over and over again.
