There’s no “good” way to get there. So I tried to fudge the odds with distance


To My Friends 


To all of the friends and family

That I have sequestered

Somewhere safely in my past

Love that I left behind

In a misguided effort to be kind

Distancing myself from those

Relationships in life that are meant to last

Please allow me to cry your pardon

I beg forgiveness for not keeping in touch

Meaning only to purloin the pain of passing

Without involving those that I care for too much

So I built walls out of the miles and silence

To muffle the grief of the inevitable end

Although I love you one and all

I did not wish to let you see my fall

So I offer my sincere apologies

To my family and friends
