In the end
it was dishonesty and lack of communication
that got to us.
But where do these things stem from?
They stem from fear.
as we know,
is the greatest bane of human existence,
the killer of potential,
the breeder of “what-ifs.”
What if we had been honest
and communicated openly
and battled our fears--
Would we have risen up and fulfilled
the potential that we always sensed we had?
There might have been a very different
ending to our story
had we both just had the
to grind our teeth together and
face that one last
Sometimes, ya just gotta let the emotions out.
