You’ve Given Up…

We used to stay up all night talking about anything and everything,
Dreams, wishes, fears and plans,
The air filled with promise, anticipation and most of all…love
We promised to love, support and never turn our backs,
Mutual respect and admiration,
Decisions deeply rooted in love and wanting us to WIN as a collective,
Feelings of rejection and hurt pride,
But time got away from us,
And the spaces crept in,
Harsh words and missed opportunities,
Opening a chasm of words unspoken and crumbling trust.
Taking for granted the fact that one of us could walk away…
Life got in the way and you’ve given up…
