Goodbye and Goodnight

The need to reconcile is so strong within me that I can’t tell whether I really want you again or if I just want reconciliation. Some things should not be mended once two people have broken them. Should they?

 The need to reconcile is so strong within me
that I can’t tell whether I really want you again
or if I just want reconciliation.
Some things should not be mended
once two people have broken them.
Should they?
Some ideas and fantasies
should be laid to rest.
 
Herein lies what rests in pieces then:
Trust. A concept my generation seems to have forgotten.
Love. A concept people don’t seem to understand.
Friendship. A concept people take for granted.
Lust. A concept people all seem to have.
Truth. A concept that always seems to hurt and heal.
 
Truth.
 
My words were true.
Which is really the only reason
why they hurt you.
 
Truth.
 
Your actions told me what was true.
Which is really the only reason
why I cried.
 
You see?
No need to reconcile then.
Let us leave these sleeping dogs to lie.
Left to reconcile only
what lies deep in their hearts,
a place where no one else gets to see.
