The Extraction

You were not

speaking directly

to me

I was the dentist

& it was extraction

A bad tooth

that needed to

come out

It’s frustrating

when I have

to pull it

out of you

Just so we

can get to

the heart of

the matter

Smooth the

emotions over

& move on

The extraction

is not the

connection

What it is

is love

waiting

to speak

———————

This is not an easy one to write about

with a happy ending in mind

But when your in a relationship

and committed to it

This is what happens
