You cannot push friendship or love
of feeling, camaraderie and mutual respect
where there is no depth felt.
Or seen. Or shared. Offered even.
This last point is especially true.
Why should the scale favour one
side; the other tipping over earnestly?
Futilely squeezing emotion from a rock.
I have learned this wisdom through
serious missteps in this regard. With
hands, heart bleeding from the effort.
You cannot force into being what
is not sewn upon middle ground.
