So much hangs on the weight of those three syllables.
Your life can turn upside down,
Seemingly in a moment,
And be irrevocably changed forever.
The wound festers
Without even noticing
Hurt and pain magnifies,
Sticking the knife in,
For seemingly no reason,
Hurting the one who means most to you.
Till you’re both encamped on different continents,
Shooting arrows at each other,
Till the relationship is well and truly
And most of all,
is a better route,
Ultimately more rewarding,
For both of you.
The rightful path is not smooth and easy,
Lessons painfully learned,
But a wiser soul be you.
