Not To Be

There are relationships that shouldn’t be.
That the only possible outcome is hurt:
Either hurt caused by setting boundaries;
Hurt caused by creating a false sense that all is well;
Hurt from introducing truth;
Hurt from miscommunication;
Hurt from being misunderstood;
Hurt from self protection;
Hurt from apparently needing to be protected from.
Sometimes it seems like
Isolation is the only sure answer.
But I don’t think that is what He intended;
Not how He intended us to live.
But neither do I think He intends for us
To keep returning to a source of hurt.
Would it be such a big deal, God,
To protect ourselves from ourselves?
I’m just asking for a little protection here.
Please get back to me.
