Lost Appreciation

Hot bubbles deep,
permeating, pulsing through
my veins.
The familiar hurt, betrayal
– rage stems from
loss.

Out on a limb to help,
to guide. Benefit of the doubt,
giving my all
to be a friend,
a teacher.

Advantages taken,
appreciation gone.
How quickly they
can turn.
Ethics lost,
nonexistent conscience.
Why Bother?

Hurt turns.
Irritation
the lingering emotion.
Indifferent – no loyalties.
Freeing.

    1. Thank you, Curt!

      Such is life! Being taken advantage of is a huge deal-breaker for me; but the behavior of others isn’t something I can control, and is not because I did anything wrong. I’m happy that I am finally at a place where I can move on with no loyalties holding me back, versus ruminating and over-analyzing the situation. I heard a fantastic quote the other day…

      “As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being re-directed to something better.” 🙂

    1. Thank you so much for your support!! The feeling is completely mutual! Neha is such a versatile breath of fresh air, one of the writers I have met on my blogging journey who inspires and motivates me to write the most eclectic, honest, and true work I can. 🙂
