To Love And To Learn - Poem by Anne Kharting

Break me twice
And fix me once;
Leave one crack
To seal your own.
Come to call,
And let me fall;
Crashing down
To lift you high.

You've got your fix,
Now leave me be.
Let the days go,
And turn them to weeks,
'Til your crack is back,
And the time repeats.

What am I for?
To heal your wounds.
What are you for,
You worthless worm?
You miss me, kiss me,
And leave me in dust;
To choke and choke,
Ne'er to learn.

To hope you'll change,
To hope you'll be there,
To fix me twice,
And not to break me Thrice.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

A 'friend' inspired this. She says on rare occasion she misses me, but does not make any effort to continue the conversation. I try to make small talk, but then she only makes one-word responses. When I try to give, give, and give in the relationship, all she does is take, take and take the companionship.
