1 Review

We're both five foot four,

We hate mac and cheese,

We both dyed our hair blond,

And love watching bees

Twirl lazily.

~

We grew up together

We're two of a kind,

It's like all our thoughts come

From the very same mind,

A secret place.

~

Then I started painting

And you started band

So I missed the feeling

Of holding your hand

While we worked.

~

Commissions began

And performances happened

But that wasn't all

Our friendship was dampened

Beyond that.

~

We both did our things

And I woke up to find

That somewhere, sometime,

I had left you behind

In a dust cloud.

~

It wasn't all my fault,

You walked away too

I think that deep down

While it happened we knew

We were drifting.

~

You moved to Seattle,

And I moved to Maine

I doubt you remember

My face or my name

Is it foggy?

~

Cause maybe you feel

The same empty as me

Or maybe you found

A new clarity.

Just without me.

~

Now we're just markings

Two dots on a map

Existing to measure

Our biggest mishap

We're distance.
