Learning to unhate

what hurts most
is that you know them
full well
when you first meet them
the wasters
leaners
promisers
the
sure, I can do this
no problem
a day maybe two
kind of people
& then they bleed on
into weeks of
unanswered calls
sorry I was out
too busy
faffy nonsense responses
until you snap
make demands
bring the whole sorry mess
to an end
somehow
all of this is down to you
your fault
& yes
you knew
from the start
this was how this
was going to be
& you wonder
are we that powerful
that we
can
create this?
or are we just too lazy
to say
no
at the outset?
