Friendship
Turns to hate-
At the drop
Of an
“I Love You”…
~
Best wishes
Disintegrate-
As I show
Affection
For you…
~
Those Hugs
Remain UN-hugged-
Those Smiles
Become so smug-
Open arms
Fall shyly away…
~
Shallowness-
I don’t need…
For Them-
My heart bleeds…
~
Friendship…
Ever the unplanted seed.





 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

Indeed, I can relate to "conditional friendship" all too well.  Very well said, dear.

Hey-arms wide open here, genuine smiles for you, and gratitude for walking a bit of a journey with you.  And of course hugs AND love to you, 'sis'.  Don't despair. Enjoy.

devina,
   very moving poem.  I know about conditional friendship as well.  But when you find a true friend, a real true friend, no condition can ever change that.  I have a definition of friendship as I see it - the way I try to be -- you can read it if you like - it is posted under "A Friend's Promise".  That is the way I always try to be.

I admire your talent Devina~
And I, too, know the pangs of conditional love~
Nicely done~

Devina, you can certainly pack a wallop in your words when you feel like it. Well done!

devina, your words ring true with me as well, as I would venture most can relate. Sad, yes. Your message here is very well delivered! True friendship is never conditional.
