Forgotten Friends

By , Winchester, VA
FORGOTTEN FRIENDS

Maybe you can forget me
And act like I don’t exist
As if closing your eyes so you couldn’t see
Can save you from the darkened twist
We weren’t that “friend-shipped” bound
Nor that different
But with your “friends” you left what was found
And now your eyes look through me as if I’m apparent
As if it wasn’t enough
Losing someone who had made so many promises
You forgot the times we had that were tough
Nailed upon a bunch of useless crosses
Denial, never a pretty thing
But you don’t want to seem mean and cold
True colors show eventually as you sing
But never before will our story be so easy to be told



You acted so innocent
The façade not broken by a crack
But you slipped up after a couple incidents
You shoved everybody away as you attack
Yet I’m still here
Moving on and living a life
Letting it play out as I wait for someone so dear
But what you do makes everything seem so trife
Maybe we were meant to forget
Drift apart as our paths separate
But the future isn’t set
And the past can come back to retaliate
Knocking us breathless and winded
Saying words that mean to offend
These times that make things so twisted
Though the minds now can’t reprehend
Parts of what has been disconnected
Maybe you can forget me
And act like I don’t exist
As if closing your eyes so you couldn’t see
Can save you from the darkened twist

This poem is to all those who have made a friend then have that exact friend "forget" them, or just choose others and their opinions over you. This is a goodbye to those people.
