Forever aware of each others presence
Forever we know of each other
We know each other o so well
At one time we loved each other
Then one of our hearts were broken
As the other walked away
We still talk
We still consider each other friends
But our words in person
Are cold and unfeeling
We dont talk much in person
Our words are over the internet
We speak freely there
But face to face we stutter
Why is it that it has to be this way
Why is it that sometimes late at night i still think of you
Why does it hurt to know im not the one you love
Why do i have trouble seeing myself with the one
I tell that i love
Why is it that we are constantly aware of each other
Why is it that we know when we need each other
Why is it that we still console each other
Why is the question that runs through my head
When i see you
When I talk to you
When i am with you
But you walked away that day so long ago now
You are still walking in that direction
As the days go by it gets even more awkward in person
And we grow farther apart
But life just keeps throwing us together
So that it just keeps tearing me apart
As you walk in that one direction
I force myself to turn and walk the other way
The worst part is that we are forever
Glancing over our shoulders
At the other as they walk away

This reminds me of me and the boy that I first fell in love with! We go to different schools but somehow we always end up coming back to each other for something. Even if its just to say "merry christmas" or something. It's like we're afraid to let go completly after all these years! Your poem described that perfectly! Great Job!
