When you lose a best friend

When we said friends forever and
crossed pinkies like grade-schoolers,
I could only believe those words
lodged in your heart
like they did mine

because every time I think back
I can't help but remember the
late-night conversations
under star lit constellations,
and study sessions where we
learned more about each other
than we did Biology  

but now it's clear
that each beat of your heart
has made those words fade,
and you could care less
about crossed pinkies

but I'll still see you,
and hear your voice
whispering
forever,
and I'll still wish
the meaning hadn't changed-
like you.

Time changes a lot of things, but I guess that is how we grow.
Stay rad cuties! :heart:

Good poem, because where most DeviART poems are about sh***y topics, yours seems to have elements of something better, something more, I can't place upon it, but yours is about a sad break-up, and presentably clean to read.

Heh this really connects to me. Thanks.
I "had" a friend, my first friend, and my only BFF. She was all I ever wanted to be, someone who stands up to the world, and most of all taught me to fight with my heart, instead of my fists...she never said goodbye and neither did I, cause goodbyes are forever....I guess that's why I fell in love with her, even if she was just friends with me to be nice cause I was alone all the time.

Sorry, I just couldn't get that off my chest. Thank you again for this. Really made me remember all that I've gained from what I lost. This really made my day!

This actually means a lot more to me now than when I first read it because now I've lost that friend.

This happened to me a couple of years ago, and recently happened again with someone else. Very touching and very accurate.
