Honesty

A Poem By Madeline // 2/16/2015

I'd be a liar if I said the want was never there
To talk about nothing like we used to
But I don't think either of us are the same people
Judging from what I've heard
I'd speak up now
Stand up
Be more diplomatic
If the need presented itself
But it won't.
And you--
You will always be the type to choose
A romance over friends
That were willing to stand by your side
But I just don't think you saw it
But then again
Longevity
Taunted us both
And maybe that was something
You knew
That I didn't.
