Best Friends Forever? Over...

We used to talk for hours
And not even notice
Now the seconds between pauses
Seem to last forever
We used to be so effortless
So natural
Real
Now we’re choking on our words
And lie about what we feel
Talking on the phone
Was full of comfortable silence
Now the sound of nothing
Rings in my ear
And it won’t disappear
We used to sign our names
With codes only we understood
Maybe you’d still understand them
But they won’t mean the same
They’ve lost their truth
“Best friends forever”
We quoted at thirteen
Fifteen’s here
And suddenly
Forever is over
