Distant Memories

February 21, 2008
By Paige Komisarow, Suwanee, GA

We walk in tempo but don’t say a word
Our looks can shatter glass but only we can feel the sting
Everything else seems to stop
As we remember
As we remember everything

Nothing’s changed but everything’s different
We’re the same but have altered in every way
Our hearts beat
But not in rhythm
Strange yet familiar

Slightly shaking
We both feel it
It’s there.
That scared feeling, the one we try to deny
Our story has turned into ashes
Distant memories

Broken promises
Deeper thoughts
We don’t say a word
We don’t have to
A shattered friendship
As we take different paths
