"Thanks, but no thanks," is what you said

I get your drift, our friendship's dead

Your answer's curt,  you're clearly peeved

You wear your hurt on your shirt sleeves

I haven't called and you feel miffed

Sorry that you take offense 

But you want more than I can give

I only asked you to be nice

So worry not, I shan't ask twice

R.S.V.P., so short and sweet 

You're in my trash, I hit delete!


There is no more sure way to kill a friendship than to demand that certain expectations be fulfilled.  Friendship, like love, must be freely given and cannot be forced into pre-conceived parameters of behavior.

And like the party, life will go on, with or without you.


Be Well and Good Luck!
