My heart swelled with acceptance
The hole gone and filled
The wall broke down love flooding through
I was nothing more than normal again
i was not angry,
I was rarely sad,
and you took the blows if it ever got bad
You were a friend,
and someone I loved
but that friendship wasn’t enough, was it?
You drenched our brotherhood in a kerosene of lies
You flicked the match with the slickness of deceit
You watched the flames with eyes of greed
And destroyed our friendship with no remorse.
You watched as I burned,
you watched as I suffered,
you heard my screams yet were deaf to your own humanity.
You sat and glared at the burning embers,
and when the fuel of our friendship had been reduced to ash, you cried.
You fell to your knees,
searching through the coals for any remnant of the relationship you destroyed,
but little did you realize I was above you in the smoke
Not with you in the ash.
