Enlightened By Recent Events

bitter ends
don’t make a nice tea
clattering to the ground
the brew makes patterns
portending futures and futures
maybe I’ve been
tainted
jaded
enlightened

by recent events
I think that relationships
are made of
personality,
compatibility,
time

if any of those three
are neglected or subverted
that relationship
is only an illusion
a bubble waiting to burst
I think the way
to navigate these
is to make sure
caring is part of our personality
honesty is part of our compatibility
patience is part of our time
if we think only of ourselves
deny that differences exist
attempt to rush headlong
towards Happy Land
that relationship is doomed

  1. We learn harsh things through our experiences
    But I think that they help fashion more beautiful selves. I’ve seen evidence of this
    As a very dear person in my life always said to me, β€œYou’ve got this”
