Reflections: Facing Reality

X
thoughtless actions . squandered trust . selfish motives . depleted courage . deflected smiles . pitiful postures . lying eyes . pejorative projections . strategic strikings . cynical statements . shattered vows . pre-emptive put-downs . defensive withdrawals . reflexive reactions . attitudinal dysfunction . pathological intent . casual betrayal . empty words . duplicitous agendas . broken promises . missed appointments . bad faith . lost trust . weak commitment . failed drugs :

xxxxxxxxxxi shall not try.

xxxxxxxxxxi shall not share.

xxxxxxxxxxi shall not hope.

xxxxxxxxxxi shall only lurk.

Fortunately, Tracie, they are my words--not yours. You are not bound to feel them.
