The unadulterated loathing passing between you two

The hate I see passing from you to you

The joy you both once felt was quite exuberant

Like a lion’s bravery, that strong

Friendship, you used to be friends, used to

But each day’s another fight 

You try to think but just trying won’t turn out all right

Your friendship’s dying and no one can help

You turn from calm to calamity, instantly

Turn back the clock awhile, don’t act like the new you

Be the people you used to be
