burning the bridge

why would you bruise me
 what possessed you to use me
how did I betray you
When did I mistreat you

How did I betray your trust
What caused you to fade away from me?
I worked so hard to be there
And in the end you don't want me to be

all of a sudden we're not cool anymore
whatever was left of our friendship is falling apart
i'm confused because there's no reason
that I know of to break this heart

Tell me what I did to you
To make you believe
That  i'm out to get you
And the only way to stay safe is to leave?

I trusted you, I thought you trusted me
What did I do to make you give up on us
All we worked through to be friends
is so easily run over by this bus

Apparently it just doesn't matter to you
So just walk away
Go ahead and burn this bridge
And once again enemies we'll stay.

    amazing. I can truly relate to this. Sometimes, things just happen like this, but gladly, others can replace the pain left behind with something much more wonderful and joyus. Love comes. Nice work. love, Jese

    this was actually intended toward a friend of mine during a spat. The bruising was more metaphorical than factual.

    If there was even the hint of a bruise, walking away may be the nicest thing he's ever done for you. Good Write. God Bless. Vince
