Stranger By My Side

There's a stranger sitting next to me
And I hardly know his face
He says we are friends
But I can't tell
Far too much has changed.
He resembles a person I once knew
Someone I trusted with all of my heart
But this stranger sitting next to me
I'd barely share my vague thoughts.
The trust just isn't there anymore
And this stranger has made that clear
I'm trying to clear the air
I'm trying to stop the tears.
But this shadow of a person I once knew
Has drifted too far away
I keep trying to reach out to him
But he can't even meet me halfway.
I look at this stranger
And think back
Feel the old pain bubble in my chest
The same eyes blankly stare at me
I'm trying to do what's best.
There's a stranger sitting next to me
I've tried time after time to reach out
But he's severed our final connection
Empty words slip out of our mouths.
It's been two weeks since I last talked to him
And this stranger is quiet by my side
I look over at him
And hollow memories
Cut through my heart like a knife.
There's so much I want to say to him
But he won't open his ears to my cries
I'm slowly loosing grip
Of the stranger by my side.
