Glances like Strangers

We used to be best friends
Ride or Die till the end
Deep dark secrets
Shared over a slice of pizza
Now it's just glances in the hallway
As if we were strangers
I'm feeling like a lone ranger
A long stormy day
Without a rainbow
A playa
Without his hoes
Lola
Without Nakiya
You hardly talk
You no longer call
So I guess
All thats left
Is a forgotten friendship
And the only thing that
Ties us together
Bonds us together
Is our deep dark secrets
We glance at each other in
The hallways
No hellos
No goodbyes
From others we look like
Complete strangers
To people who don't know better
They'll think
We're just strangers
Glancing at each other
Caught each others eye
But I know better
We used to be best friends

I love this poem, it reminds me of an old best friend I used to have in elementary but now it's just akward silence nd glances through middle school hallways.

I enjoyed reading it, got very curious, I'm very sorry for the sad story line, I really like the style and the option of the words put in odder it has a look and tone, something seems to be missing something, Honestly 4/5 !

I like it, this sort of thing happens way too often. This is a perfect description of what its like, to those who have been through it, and for those who haven't.
