A Friendship Gone

This morning I awoke with thoughts
of a friendship long passed
remembering my own folly
in a moment of bitter weakness

She had come to visit after death
had been so close to consuming me
in a darkened haze my lips parted
ushering forth a confession of love

She told me I should have told her
at the moment I first realized it
but I could not all those years ago
as it was unrequited and never about me

I fumbled further with those words
asking a question only a fool would
eliminating all possible futures
“If you weren’t married would we have a chance?”

Only a few more times would we speak
and never again so closely as we had
all gratitude I could muster for her visit
buried beneath the weight of desperation

She was right for being ever silent
for I had lofted her upon a pedestal
I had no right to build for her
thus stripped the safety of our friendship

    I’m more happy that it seems you’ve regained health — at least it’s a hope. So, that is good, and I’m sorry about your lost love, and happy for you to have had the chance to have once felt that, regardless of eventual outcome.
