The Text

All I asked for was a simple apology,
For the wrong of a long time yesterday;
So a new dawn of a relationship might grow.
Not possible on the sharp ashes of the old,
But on sweet soft moss, new as virgin snow.
Your text was savage and brutal unkind.
So the last I deleted, to save me, un- read.
The contents I thought would be ugly, I’d find;
Your message, I shall never be sure in my mind.
How comforting never to know
Anymore ways, you can rain down your blows.
I have lost your friendship, which seems could
never be healthy;
All this for a request for a simple apology.
