Just Say So
Author: Cheryl


Why don't you just say that you don't want to know?
Why do you have to let your silence grow?
Why don't you say our friendship is no more?
Why don't you tell me straight... what is the score?

I'm tired of all this guessing and doubt.
Trying to always figure you out.
I've no idea what is meant by your silence.
So conclusions I jump to, then meet your defiance.

You avoid my friendly questions, ignore what I say.
I remember a time when you were never this way.
Since you moved away, you've changed so much.
But I never thought that we'd lose touch.

I know that you're busy; I am too!
I've got children, as well as you.
But if it's true that you really care.
You'd keep in touch from anywhere.

It seems all my effort is such a waste.
I write letters and emails now in haste.
In the hope that you will acknowledge me.
And continue our friendship as it used to be.

I want to put my mind at rest.
I'm sick of feeling like your pest.
Tell me why, if you no longer want to know.
If our friendship is over - JUST SAY SO

Bravo! Bravo!

Great Poem!!! I really enjoyed this one, and it's true, that's the way people should be if they want to lose touch with each other. GREAT POEM ;D

Thank you, Enchantress

I appreciate your taking the time to read and respond to my poem. I wrote this just last week, "What's Going On?" I wrote in April of this year. They both follow on from "Acceptance" which I wrote April 2002. It's crazy that even after all this time, I'm still grieving for what I feel is a loss of friendship. Take care, Enchantress. Cheryl.
