dead friendships

by Richard Trotter

Our colors did not match
our rooms were made of cloth
and now they're split by rain
a clinging stain upon the earth
is all that its worth.

Our wings did not connect
and lead us to the clouds
a thread thats worn to mute
and once again, the fabric frays
only the loneliness stays.


Author's Note: it hurts to be rejected.

this is so beautiful, (to use an over-used word, sorry) - it couples the fragility of a butterfly with that precious, exquisite but breakable item - friendship. and a part of our fabric seems to break with that loss. I get it perfectly. Yes, none of us bears rejection too well.
