distant

in your mind. i mean, it's not like i'm real.

September 26th, 2019

i can tell what you're trying to do.

you're trying to distance yourself from me.

i'm okay with that, to be honest.

but i'm not okay with how you're doing it.

 

december 31st. 2018. 

you looked at me.

you held up your pointer finger.

"you are my #1."

the funny thing is?

for the longest time, i believed you.

 

this year has gone by fast.

last year, i was abandoned.

you found me.

you restored me.

you gave me the hope for myself i had lost.

and i felt good again.

i felt human again.

you helped me through the biggest crisis of my life so far.

and i'm very, very grateful.

 

as the year went by, we talked.

we argued.

we laughed.

you were confident.

but as soon as your flaws were visible, you'd hide away.

you'd expose mine.

you'd let the blame rest on the person everyone would willingfully blame.

the person who even i'd blame.

myself.

 

now i can see

you're spending more time with her.

we still talk

but it's distant

and all my hope

all my love

it all slipped away.

and i realized you aren't the only person in this world.

so i'm okay.

 

but please,

don't remain silent.

if you don't want to be friends, so be it.

shout it to the heavens, for all i care.

but please, don't do it like this.

tell me.

tell me everything.

and then we can g our seperate ways, and i can finally have my head

clear once more, ready to find a friend

who won't stop loving me for who i am.

 

i'm okay

if we grow distant

but let's talk first.

okay?

aww :( I love the way you

aww :(

I love the way you wrote this poem and I can relate to the story you told. Friendship can just be so confusing sometimes. I really hope everything goes okay!

^i wholeheartedly agree with

^i wholeheartedly agree with the above. 

I called this type of poem "drabbles" when I was writing them. I haven't in a while, but I still admire them in their raw beauty. 

Small nitpick: you wrote "willingfully" where I think you meant "willingly."

I hope you guys manage to talk this out.
