MAYBE

it was the language used in asking

it was not polite

or was it too direct

you did not give pleasantries

you did not sweet talk it through

was it too demanding

was the reasoning to approach too bias

to put the other in a bad light

were you not clear that you adore

he or she of that speciality of his or hers

that is why you asked him or her for that help

you felt it is an excellent art

you wished and wanted to learn from

what was it you query oneself

to cause a friendship to be tattered

for everyday is a day to learn

to be better from what you were

yesterday and the present

eventually you say oneself is the problem to it all

you have to mend your ways

mmh loud thoughts

*mmh is an expression to mean to come to a realization.
