The Unkindest Cut of All

Hanging by a thread
A once bold friendship wilts
Lingers on its last binding tie
Ready for the unkindest cut of all

The pain caused
Irreparable consequences
Strikes at the heart
Damages through to the soul

Only a miracle now
Can put off
What karma has told
Of the unkindest cut of all

The foul decision
Resonates loud and clear
The door has been shut
Opportunity lost

The resulting pain
lasts forever
Of desecrate decisions
Intentional or not

The weary patience
Reaches its pinnacle
Surpassing a threshold
A probable point of no return

The unkindest cut of all
Is but a few moments away
Who knows how it will come
Almost certain to fall

Unwritten rules
Broken, shattered to pieces
The breakup is finalized
The aftermath resolute

It is dusk outside
The darkness deepens
The curtains will fall
On this sad night for all

What was thought to be
Now is irrational
Ill conceived in stupidity
Leads to one final conclusion

It is time to leave
Part ways absolutely
Ready for the finality
The unkindest cut of all.
