Lack of communication

Why did we not communicate

How we felt, what we wanted,

Before you walked out the door

Why did we not tell one another

That we needed more

Why is people never say what they mean

Until the other has walked out the door

Both frustrated and felt taken for granted

Both felt as if they were ignored

Both expecting to much from the other

But did nothing until the other walked out the door

Both felt a lack of appreciation

And lacking gratitude

Why is it people never say what they mean

Until the other has walked out the door

Why is it both desperately grieve

Because neither wanted to leave

Why is that they both couldn’t both sit down

And share there feelings

Why do people never say how they feel

Until the other walks out of the door

Why is it they will sacrifice what they’ve got

Rather than simply talk

Why are they willing to self inflict so much pain on themselves

Why is people never say what they mean

Until the other walks out the door

And they still don’t say it one another

They only tell family and friends

And that’s why some relationships end

Because they could not communicate with one another

So one walked out the door.

  1. I can totally relate to having a relationship like this and it’s so unfortunate. I love this piece. Thank you for sharing! I’m currently writing a series on healing and my latest post is about communication. Hope you’ll check it out!

  2. This hit home. In my experience, when I’ve told someone hoe I feel it gets thrown back in my face. I’m the type who keeps everything bottled up and when I feel I’m about to explode I’ll write a burn journal. It makes me feel some what better. And I think it boils down to pride, too.
