Slipping Away

I thought it would last forever.

I thought I knew you so well.

We used to be so close.

Inseparable, the three of us.

Every secret that we told,

All the laughs that we shared –

It was perfect.

But it all changed so quickly.

I felt you slipping away,

And I tried to hold onto you.

But you kept drifting.

What else could I do?

From the outside looking in,

I watched you and your friends.

I used to be that girl, your closest friend.

But now we were strangers,

Without the hope of becoming closer.

Something changed you

While I wasn’t watching.

And then it was gone;

I didn’t know you anymore.

But I didn’t want to leave you.

It lasted for so long.

Letting go was so hard.

But only for me – you let go so easily.

Did it even matter to you?

Did it ever matter to you?

I thought it would last forever.

I thought I knew you so well.
