Growing Apart

Your smile
Fades from memory
Like a forgotten polaroid
And your laughter
Bears a nostalgic echo
Skipping through
The dim corridor of my thoughts
Though we promised
We’d always be friends
Our conversations
Grow more infrequent
And all I have
Are these vestigial reels
Flickering across my mind
Of when we used to be
Silly
Close
True friends
No one ever prepares you
For the emotional bruises
From

apart.
