There are times I wake up
feeling unsure, I hear my friends
talk about not having expectations
I don’t know how I feel about that
I’m a loner anyway
this to me adds to it
I’m finding I’m not a fan
of these disposable relationships
these feel good band aides
that we can rip off
when we think they are getting too heavy
Is it because it’s just so easy to find?
Someone cool on social media ?
Who you consider a friend…kindred or
I have to disagree…
Just because we have evolved into
meeting people on a virtual street
doesn’t mean our feelings aren’t real
and that our souls don’t bleed…
