Divorcing A Friend

Twisted words among people we trust
endlessly leaping forward creating dust.
Cherish this, a fool I was once,
but never again shall I be your dunce.
You washed the walls with my soul,
and left with me a gapping hole.
Blind corners drive your ambitions
leaving you blissfully lost,
creating nasty dispositions.

I failed to color in the lines
you traced for me,
so now my volcanic anger is all you see.
I saw in you a beautiful portrait
of a friend,
but no longer can my army of feelings
continue to defend.
I traveled through your destructive journey,
thankful now that divorcing a friend
requires no attorney.

And I thought: this is how poetry is born. It comes from invisible heights, it is secret and dark in its origins, solitary and fragrant, and like the river it will assimilate whatever falls in its current; it will seek a route between the mountains, and its crystalline song will ripple through the meadows."- Pablo Neruda

Christina is right. The last stanza is a killer! I hope I'm always on your good side.
