This is hard
So much harder
Than I ever 
Thought it would be

It is so very hard
To say good bye
When no one
Is actually leaving

We are here
We are both still here
Two strangers who became friends
Who will soon become strangers again

Because you would not 
Let me in
Could not see me 
Through your walls

And those who hurt you
Those who jaded you
Have turned your heart to stone
And made you too hard

  1. I cannot imagine anyone reading this poem who will not be able to relate. Beautifully composed and soooooooo true.

  2. Ah, yes. That is hard. And it resonates with me. Well said, or written, and I like the way you use the different meanings of hard.

  3. It is beautifully written and relatable.
