Quitting Time

Recommended Posts

Ether Blue

Every time you take a jab,

a snub so subtle almost no one sees,

you seal our once friendship, now Stockholm-syndrome-bond

because it recalls the power high,

Junkie-of-Souls.

Because being angry

is easier than being sad.

But are you really very sad?

You want someone's codependency--

to have access to all of them

regardless if they decide to give it all.

Because at some point when

the time is right for you, you push for it all and 

are vehemently offended if

they hold back or move away or decline.

Shouldn't you check yourself

to see if it is you

who is out-of-line, gone too far?

It is never you,

always me.

And you change the Rules but

no matter what I must never understand the Rules

because you react and so

I conclude that nothing I do

will ever be right.

You feel denied of codependence and so

I never have good or kind or loving

motivations in your mind.

I quit.

There is a time for that word, 

and it is here.

Your love, your friendship

were always hungry

beneath their surface, always calculating.

I will miss

who I thought you were but

that was not really you.

But now I know

and it's quitting time.
