I Was Mistaken.

When I look
I see
I mistook
your pleasantries
for friendship
and what we had
was really
at all.

When I touch
I feel
too much
the cold shoulder
of your scowl
and I know
you meant
none of it
at all.

I was mistaken
about you
and I'm sorry
for it too.


  1. There are few things so heart-wrenching as being on the wrong side of a lop-sided friendship. But it's better to end such a thing than to continue being the only one straining to make it work. (At least you got a good write out of the deal... nicely stated!)
