We came together,
similar to shores on a wave.
Soft and gentle caress turned hurricane
when the pressure gave.
We fought like soldiers
destined to answer to their god.
Harshness and fury giving way to empty words
punctuated by a half-hearted nod.
Once fun and carefree,
we kept on keeping score.
Though our end result was different,
we both knew we wanted more.
Neither of us would budge,
preferring to just pull.
We’d take and take and break the rules,
knowing what we’d done in full.
Exchanging loving tongues
for cruelty at the end.
Harsh words led not just to loss of love,
but also loss of a friend.
