Three Times Betrayal

Hopes and dreams been ripped away, Along with friends who weren't so true. Some kinds of love just cannot stay In hearts whose vision's over-due. I've said, "Really, you don't treat me well and you've truly hurt my heart." Asking, simply, for a sorry, Before our friendship's torn apart. I hope I musn't step aside, And disregard our lovely past. . But it seems as if their choice is pride, And they'd rather that our love not last. What shallow 'motion in their souls, And hardened cold sincerity. A friendship once had burned with fire, Now nothing but some crackling coals It now has shown so clear to me.

    "In hearts who's vision's over-due." Why impatient? "Asking, simply, for a sorry, Before our friendship's torn apart." What to you is an apology? I don't ask this to taunt you or expect a direct answer, but if you look into the subtlety of these notions i think there is more to understand. "I hope I musn't step aside," So you are the one who is breaking the connection? "But it seems as if their choice is pride," And if they are not apologetic, and you walk away, is this not pride too?

    An apology is simply being able to put friendship before mindset

    Profound words to touch a heart. I'm not comprehending how someone would give up love with someone so beautifully articulate with verse.
