OF THINGS BREAKING

I know I talked about posting weekly (and that’ll be the minimum, promised) but I felt like sharing this one with you all today. You’ll be pleased to know I’ve decided in the end to confront and therefore mend…We’ll live to tell the story.

Enjoy.

————————————————————————–

I felt something break.

No one else would’ve heard or seen it, no one else would’ve known,
but I, I know it happened.
I felt something break.

The trust we had built between us,
for years and years, chipped – ever so slightly it chipped – and then broke.

The connection that was there – from the beginning of time – suddenly weakened.

I felt something break.

So subtle, so quiet,

we will probably never talk about it.

The physical distance between us,
will serve as disguise, as a cover –
protecting us from ever having to confront

what has happened…

I felt something break.

It hurts to think, that something so small,
something so little, but an opinion,

could drive a wedge between what once was.

That one decision you’ve disagreed with,
a matter so minor,

could change the way you see me.

You, the preacher of tolerance,

have suddenly become the thing you’ve blamed THEM to be all their lives…

I felt something break.

Will we bury it hereafter?
Pretend it never happened?
Truth is, no-one will ever know, but I,

I felt something break.

You and I, will never be the same.
