One-Way Street

by Kitty Cat Lady   Oct 12, 2017


I can't solve all your problems
I can barely cope with mine
You're asking too much of me
You've almost crossed that line

I am your friend and I do care
But you should support me too
Yet every single time we meet
It has to be all about you

You never ask how I am
I come away feeling heavy
Your woes discussed for hours on end
The weight of your world I carry

Your monologues dramatic
Designed to get attention
The truth bent to your story
A master of manipulation

This journey has now run its course
With your issues I can't compete
I won't come back and see you
I'm veering off this one-way street.

**memories of an ex-"friendship"**

    Kitty, absolutely love this. I'm glad this person is no longer in your life. These are the type that a huge negatives. You spoke true, life is hard enough without proper friends to be there for you too. Hugs-

    Kitty, anyone can easily relate to this poem.
    I guess this has happened to each one of us somewhere in life.
    The way you rhyme, it's amazing.
    Never stop writing and never leave us.

    Any kind of relationship doesn't work well if it's one-sided, that's for sure. There has to be give and take or it can never work in the end. The weight gets too much for one person to carry.

    Take care, Kitty,

    rhyming as ever is wonderful, a piece I can relate to on a deep level and how we feel we know a friend. Its so sad when we spend wasted years on someone that turns out to be not what we relied upon. In the end its a damn good job and riddance!
    Much love
    Michael x :)
