my old friend

sadness is visiting


time to welcome

taking notice

time to quit ignoring her

reading my tears 

her invitation is

to no longer be misled by the thrill of the chase when pursuing elusive connections

I am sad having 

to let go of people

who have done no wrong

but who do not offer what I desire 

honest and uncomfortable 

conversations and reflections 

or deeper friendships

who, for no fault of their own

are out of depth when my heart seeks nourishment 

and my soul longs for union

my tears flow

whenever my knowing friend

is deepening my awareness
