The rays of sunshine from his loving heart melted away
the iciness and cold that enraptured her soul.
All the kindness and gentle words he offered couldn’t fill
the gap in her soul to make her whole.
The underlying ire meant for another left the brittle bridge
of their friendship precariously hanging in tow.
Even after deflecting and turning her back on him,
her worst fears met,
to stand and face herself, now alone.
