Friends and Lovers

Written by: Steven Mossburg

Friends aren’t always friendly
Lovers don’t always love
What do I do with my pain?

I search my soul
I struggle to see
What causes you to be so cruel?

Was it an unkind word
A careless comment
Something I said in passing?

Was it a thoughtless deed
An act of self
Something I did that hurt you?

Friends aren’t always friendly
Lovers don’t always love
I know what you do with your pain.
