Had a good friend once maybe too good
Relationships would be discussed
One subject was ‘where do we go from here’?
That concept was a minefield of possibilities
Go forward, backward or tread water
What had already been said or done
That brought us to this point
How had it changed us
What would we do now
Seriously now everyday?
Our relationship had now impinged
On every other one we shared
Looking in your eyes now
Who do I see
Behind those eyes
People peering through
People I should still be seeing
Too late to extract oneself
Too late to go back?
Not really our choice
For all has been forever changed
