April 11 - Prompt is to write a Defensive Poem

The Defensive

I’m sorry for what happened
to you and I want to be your friend
but things will never be the same.
You turned everything upside down
like a vase of flowers
knocked off the table,
falling in slow motion,
everyone trying to catch
a different flower and save it.
Petals everywhere, and
water, like blood,
flowing all over the floor,
making us slip and slide.
We slid right into a future
that found us two decades later,
incapable of truly communicating,
barely able to reach out.
I’m sorry
but I can’t help you anymore.

Thanks for reading.....
