A Friend Betrayed

What to do with a friend betrayed?
The argument unsettled
the tight knot, loose and frayed.

How to trust when the bond is broken?
No apologies, no sympathy
ignorant smiles, the issue unspoken.

What will happen when time has passed?
Does the crack mend
does it grow a gap?

Sincerity binds,
Acknowledgments stick.
Close mindedness shuts,
Selfishness splits.

What to do with a friend betrayed?
Alone you cannot meet them half way.

Collaborative efforts combine, combine
Open honesty relief, rely
Too much pressure crumbles and divides
Denial isolates and solidifies

the growing gap
the time gone by
the friend forgotten
the trust unwinds.
