“Seven”

Where do I start?

Where do I begin?

Here we go,

Is everybody in?

It all started one fateful day,

I had just begun my shift

And there she was making her way.

As she walked up to me

I noticed that she wasn’t alone.

When she tried to introduce herself

I had to run off to go answer the phone.

It was the supervisor,

He had called to explain her task.

A woman so beautiful, but in secret

Hiding her ugly side behind a mask.

Fast forward three years,

And she’s the bestest friend I’ve ever had.

A clumsy lover but a great listener,

All in all, she wasn’t half bad.

But then there was this issue of little white lies…

That fact alone wasn’t a deal breaker,

Forcing her to be honest?

Her own dad couldn’t even make her.

But I wasn’t an angel, I played my part as well.

Fast forward to our fifth year, there’s more I have to tell.

I’ll admit, it took a lot of hard work, but we made it this far.

And to show for it, I helped her buy a car.

It’s a trip, but this is a new record for me,

With all my experience,

Communication has always been the key.

Now here we are, bottom of the 6th inning.

Year number seven, so why does it feel like we’re back at the beginning?

Family should always come first,

We can all agree.

But when that family is always negative?

Nah, that’s not the life for me.

I stood by her side and gave her balance and support,

But she always chose them over me,

I wasn’t even considered her last resort.

And then one day out of the blue the texts and calls just stopped…

The comfy bubble I was living in popped.

All that work we put in was for nothing.

Instead of falling down we should of stood for something.
