they finally moved away
to a bigger house for their bigger everythings
they seemed nice until they weren't,
insulted that you didn't bend to their demands
I just wanted peace
I wanted to like them
but they worked hard to chisel away the good will
I am not perfect.
the house is empty
the windows are dark
and their big white SUV is gone
An opportunity lost to have been friends
but I don't think they have regrets
they are the center of a buzzing hive,
honey drips from their fingertips.
