Bittersweet - Poem by Tlholohelo Ramatlhape
My pain is almost tangible as I experience a myriad of emotions for I have lost a friend, yet my feelings are bittersweet, for finally I have completely extricated myself from suffocating grip of an emotional vampire that sucked the life out of me everyday;
A spiritual connection has been severed, and a physical attachment will exist no longer, yet I rejoice for I have gained freedom from the negativity that hung like a dark cloud over my joy, like a weight around my neck causing me to drown in her anger and bitterness;
I may shed a tear or two, but the relief I feel overshadows any sense of loss this defining moment may accompany, yet I question whether it was meant to be forever, or has the friendship died a natural death to be buried and never exhumed?
