RoseAnn V. Shawiak
Standing off, facing no one, afraid to spell out the truth, even to best friends - soul-mates.
Taking the easy way out, lying to another's face, being asinine, losing stature in a friend's eyes.
Feelings get hurt and bruised, hearts are broken, tears come unbidden, freely, totally, uncompromisingly.
Filling empty hearts and minds with emotional abandonment.
Unfulfilled promises are piled high inside, a mind keeping track of each and every one, photographically being remembered for an eternity.
