Tears - Poem by Julie A Smith

Tears are healing
yet they sometimes feel
like a reminder
of bittersweet memories.

My heart feels so slow to heal
while others move on so quickly
it makes me pause and wonder
were feelings real to both of us
or just one-sided?

I have a friend wedding to attend this Friday
and I will go solo to it
if my friend and her boyfriend
are not able to go at the last minute
since their attendance is up in the air
and I was supposed to ride with them.
After my break-up with my boyfriend
my plus one got cut,
and it feels so hard to go to a wedding alone
where I know just the bride and her guy.

Weddings can definitely make you feel single.
I wish I had a guy friend to go with
but guy friends seem so MIA of late
and I feel like they are not reliable
and present in my life
which also makes me sad.
I wish I could count on my guy friends
like I do my girl friends
but they don't make the same effort
these days
and I am not one to run after guys
or beg for time or friendship.
I would hope for better than that
if a guy wanted to be my true blue friend.
