All Fizzled – Did We!

Prayers to Christ
Protection lowlifes

Failures disappoint
Blues turning point

Barbecue sizzles
Predominant goal fizzles

Prayer requests
Favorable conquests

Reorganization return
Relentless optimism

Oversights defeated
Aftermath greeted

Darkness forthwith turns
Scented candles burn

Faith in Christ remain
Thoughts 'fizzle' abstain.

Friendships Come – Friendships Go

Trustworthy pals
Opportunist casuals

Facial expressions
Camouflage deceptions

Hornswoggling hellos
Gut instincts follow

Routine dream players
Consistent heart-breakers

Doubtful succumb handsome charms
Watchful observation sound-off alarms

Flawless performances thou heed
Wary romantic semblances foresee

Insidious characters await opportunes
Stealthily vulnerable genuines consume

Empath's knowledgeability full intact
Dismissal routine requests pass-fail test

Once promises broken hurtful gut-wrenchers 
Unspokens possible signs potential betrayers

Think back high school days friends true versus fakes 
Some let go no regrets, faithful kept close no mistakes.
