why are we so stubborn?
judgment too clouded to even realize
that these words just warrant a rift.
have we thought before we spoke?
angry tones and fiery eyes serve only
to ignite the incendiary air we’ve made.
would you admit that you were selfish?
i don’t point the finger just at you, as
i’m whirling it back at myself.
please can we stop this madness?
cease the saline tears that stain my cheeks
and come to reconcile once again.
do you know that i miss you?
not knowing the state of your heart
pains me more than this is worth.
so why am i so stubborn?
i’m not proud to be a fool but
it’s keeping me from calling to say
