Human discourse, mental anguish, emotional pain,
Consequences either unforeseen, ignored or altogether denied,
Confrontation is, at best, a defense, a futile attempt at disguising the obvious,
Walls continue to grow, doubt increases, self perseverance takes a front seat,
Passion declines, hate diminishes, replaced with apathy, cold indifference,
Taken for granted, trust and respect abused, the gap heightened and love misused,
Compassion unreciprocated, the effort inconsequential, action-reaction, a vicious cycle,
The results undeniable, irrevocable, the damage total, the loss complete.
