Remember Me?

Its sad when people become what they promised to never be,
Do you even remember me?
All of those nights filled with fun and laughter,
In a book so heavily bound, it seems only to be a tiny chapter.
A person you once held so close,
The person you counted on the most.
A friendly face forgotten in a crowd,
One can barely speak in a room so loud.
The person that you use to run to,
Becomes the person you pretend you never knew.
A few days, a week, and soon a year pass by,
So much time apart you don’t even want to try.
Even if you did it wouldn’t feel the same,
The loss of a friendship and only us to blame.

This is such a sad poem, for it displays the gradual tragedy of losing a friendship. I know the feeling very well. Reading the words, I shared the grief that you articulated and recollected my own. If this is true for you, I'm sorry.
