Poetry Thursday " Demise"

Poetry Thursday
Demise
Work, pregnancy, baby
Showers, Birthday parties,
We shared it all
Happiness, holidays, haranguing
Negotiations, abuse, divorce
We shared it all
Devastation, degradation, humiliation
Harassment, horror, heroism
We shared it all
Illness, grief, trust
Broken cars, and marriages
We shared it all
Camping, beaches, parks
Ice-creams, picnics, shopping
We shared it all
Wine, flowers, Fashion
Laughter, wit, gossip
We shared it all
Secrets, silliness, sadness
Solace, sovereignty, patriotism
We shared it all
Books, movies, music
Stupidity, shallowness, shame
We shared it all
Opinion, opposition, angst
Worry, wonder, wishes
We shared it all
Then one day
A letter,
A lashing,
Lanced
Severed
Forever
Then
Desolation,
Deprivation,
Mortification
Alone

How poignant. Surely made me think of my best friend and how thankful I am still to have her.
