Hi everyone! Welcome or welcome back to my blog! I’m so excited for my third poetry post. This one is actually from a few weeks ago (much newer than my last two posts). I hope you guys like it!
I wrote this about some of my close friendships. I’ve been very lucky to meet some kind, smart and wonderful people and very fortunate to call them my friends. Initially we were inseparable. We created so many amazing memories together that we couldn’t fathom not being friends. But life took us in different directions and we grew apart. Although its hard to let go sometimes, I realized that even when I’m not as close to my friends, we will still always be there for each other.
When I met you
It was like breathing air
So easy and natural
Being anywhere else
Simply didn’t compare
I was blinded by your light
So strong, it drew me in
I’d never seen anything so bright
For the first time, I felt something within
We spent every spare moment together
Didn’t need the company of any other
We could get through anything
Everything the world would bring
Slowly, our narrow paths grew even wider
Still we fought against the rising dividers
We refused to let go,
Refused to change,
Refused to let the bricks fall
The ones we had so beautifully arranged.
But still our differences yanked us apart
We loosened our fingers
For we knew it was time
We knew in our hearts
We walked down our separate roads
Struggling to keep the demons at bay
I closed my eyes and remembered
You were only one lane away.

If you missed my first two poems, be sure to check them out (linked below), I would love to hear your thoughts.
(1) “Scars So Deep”
*Also, I noticed that my poems are spaced very strangely. I tried using the [verse] feature, but that changes the font and adds a scroll bar (horizontally). Please let me know in the comments, if you know how to fix it!*
Thank you guys for stopping by, see you next Friday! 🙂
