old friends

its a long walk

my doorstep to yours

what we were to what we are

what i envisioned and what i settled for

its a bitter pill

knowing i did something to change your mind

knowing our memories are golden only to me

knowing someday there will be a girl who you find better than me

and not knowing.

six months felt like an eternity, a lifetime of us, a little world and a future within numbered days

but when someone asks me how i know you, i wont show it

i’ll give my practiced shrug, my rehearsed smile

and say we’re just old friends
