Compassion from one,
Sanity and love from the other, The blood.
You’ve told her she can never come back.
The move is permanent
You’ve asked the impossible of me.
To be a secret, secondary
What did you expect?
Suddenly no stubbornness?
Suddenly no self-esteem?
We may love you unconditionally,
But we are not un-changed by your cruelty.
We may always be there for you,
But things will never be the same.
The time for acceptance is now.
But you, the stone cannot.
