What was once joyful
From out of the blue
This relationship came
It was so unexpected
And lovely to have

It’s hard to describe
What this relationship meant
Feelings jumping at me
I did not know how to respond

The connection was hot
The feelings so true
Like kids at the park
Lying back on the grass

But with life in the way
I started to slip
With such a fun gal
I made a very large mistake

I missed many hints
Of what this relationship meant
That the friend I loved most
Was scooped up and away

But as so often happens
I did not shy away
For this person I loved
Would always be there

Her new situation
I would respect although vain
The feelings were hidden
I did not even know

Then with honest communication
I explained my mistake
It would have been smarter
To lock them away

Once the pain was uncovered
The action was taken
By her and her lover
To bury me away

While I pleaded with fury
People seemed aggravated
The reasons did not matter
Only that they would not care
