your words
hit a chord
reminding me of a friend
and how
in our youth
we so agonized about the men we loved
they both fell in love
with a girl
at the same time
and we started to see ths sides we had never known
had never realized
were even there
and we beganto wonder

if we had but chased a dream

we still talk
he and i
and sometimes in our own spaces
we still miss those ones we loved
but we helped each other to leave behind
because they could never understand
what stood there before them
offered love unconditional
with hearts that were broken
once we learned
we had been simply convenient
to fill their time
