Ringing in the New Year

It's time to shed a few pounds--
Shed the weight of
     so called friends who
         make excuses and pretend...

Its time to heal wounds--
Neglected truths passed over
     in favor of fancy words
         meant to numb the pain...

How quickly we mean so little
To people who claim we mean a lot
     and how quickly people cease to care
          just use you as a bridge--

But I'm moving on,
Pouring alcohol on open wounds
     breathe in the burning and stinging
          of healing flesh.

Its time to start a new year
Brighter and devoid of regret--
    wipe away past mistakes,
          learn from broken hearts...

Its time to shed that extra weight
Bury dead friendships and
      say my last goodbyes,
           walk away and never look back.

New Years Resolutions

I don't usually make new years resolutions, but this year, I think I have exactly one resolution: get rid of "friends." We all have those people who claim to have our best interest at heart, but really don't care about us at all. Sometimes it hurts to admit, that the people close to us are really not there for us, but there comes a time when we have to open our eyes and deal with reality.

As I grow older, many of my friends have new responsibilities: children, husbands, and careers. I support them, and am not offended that I see or hear from them less. "Friends" on the other hand can make time to post on Facebook but not to answer a text.  "Friends" were all about your "friendship" when they were putting the pieces back together in their life, but now that they're not lonely, your "friendship" barely exists. "Friends" are dead weight.#NoDeadWeightIn2015
