Friend or foe, it shouldn't matter
Wording.....often a main factor
Explanation, causing real pain
Thoughtless words, tears fall as rain

Verbal or written, may give clues
Both outcome, black-edged-hue
In hindsight wary, as feelings may
Block way back, at the end of day

Hold your breath, dance out of step
Mounting emotions, cautiously met
Early relationship, commitment vague
Long-term-outburst, trust rapidly fade

Admitting to factors, may take time
Being honest, crosses personal line
Delaying way forward, when words
In hindsight stop progress, it's absurd

Yet lovers tiffs, come rapid at times
Flying red flags, you know the kind
Spoken in anger, with no way back
As harsh words will, compassion lack
