Exchange Of An End - Poem by Jose Maret

Dim lights, an English autumn evening
Flower power, timeless Scot Glen blend
Crowded corners, comforts cushioned
Enquiring depths, eyes filtering drifts
Straying words, an upheaval, enlisted
Enquired, interrogated, unconnected
An exchange, pretentious normality
Blame, fire, post cards, more words
Husbands, clarifications, more changes
Apologies, honesty, more clarifications
No truths, blames, more sharing
Shared decision, friendship, more carpets
A hug, a goodbye, and a silence

Poet's Notes about The Poem

An end of a friendship in an evening cushioned in drinks!
It is sad when I think of the time when my recognition that the friendship was not a 2-way process but a gradually building heap of lies to keep a pretense for the world outside.
I still mourn the loss to this day and hope that things were different. I still have to let go of the friendship that would have never been.
