“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.

While she walked up to me

I noticed that she was not alone.

As she tried to introduce herself

I had to run off to go answer the phone.

It was the supervisor whom had called

And he had explained her task,

She was so beautiful and angelic

Her name I just had to ask…

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 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, on my heart I sport a very big scar.

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 brings you down, and sucks out your life?

Nah, that’s not the life for me.

Here in this chapter is the part where we can agree to disagree.

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

But she always chose them over me I must sadly report.

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

The bubble I was living in popped.

I’m at a point where I don’t know what to do anymore?

Is it game over? What was the final score?
