Weird cause I don't relate but I also wrote it. Fun times

did you ever?

August 15, 2019


we were so close in my head
then what happened i can’t understand
was the fabric of our friendship 
weaved from words lost in translation?
was the bond holding us
fragile as a strand of spider silk?
the colours in my film-roll head
in yours, faded, the shade of forgotten?

when you pop up in my thoughts
there used to be a smile on my face
seems like that dream was too high a hope
and now that smile is tinged with shadow

i aimed for the moon but shot a boomerang
and now it hurts twice
to see a friend i cherished walk away, away

one last thing before i say goodbye
i am dying to know
did we ever see eye to eye?
did you ever, even for a second
love me 
the way i did you?

    Well okay ouch because this is a very deep and well written poem. Anyone who reads this can feel at least a bit of the pain this poem is trying to convey, whether this happened to them or not. This "i aimed for the moon but shot a boomerang" is also my absolute favourite line.
