The Slip

Friends becoming close,
Reaching a point of intimacy,
Where feelings are shared,
With out care of the pain it shows.

Then a tragic event,
A slip of the tongue,
A joke gone wrong,
A tear seperates.

One trys to reconcile,
The other forgives,
But the damage is done,
Only time can heal the wound.

And that is the true tragedy,
The time it took to build trust,
All thrown away because of stupidity,
Remember step number three!

Words are powerful,
Choose wisely where you place them,
For a slip of the tongue can ruin,
Even the strongest friendship.
