Divegent Lives - Poem by Khloe Chace

Here's another story of a heart hurt life.
I know everyone's is difficult.
But this is my story,
About how our friendship ended with a lightning bolt.

Their family moved here when I was two.
We became fantastic friends quickly.
I don't know how or where we met,
I just know we were the dog and the flea.

We used to laugh and push her imaginary friend 'Bob' on the swing.
We put makeup stupidly on each other without feeling embarrassed.
We swam in her pool, raced go-karts in my backyard
To find a friendship like hers and mine was rarest.

Her brother was another story,
To be told at another time.
But this girl was the best I'd ever known.
I had no idea it was about to decline.

From two to kindergarten, this seemed like eternity,
We were the best of friends, with no gray.
For some reason, I never figured out why,
But we drifted apart like two clouds flying slowly away.

She found the popular crowd.
I found my close friends I have now.
I still remember that day, that she stuck her tongue out at me.
And to a kindergartner, all I could do was cry and wonder how.

I haven't talked to her since she moved.
At school, I rarely see her.
When I do, she never notices me.
Or just doesn't care

I wish they could just visit.
But even if they did, it wouldn't be the same
We would stand awkwardly.
Time without knowing each other is to blame

I'm not saying I can't live my life now,
That her and I have drifted apart, as do the clouds.
But I wish that I could figure out that one thing I did wrong.
Even if I did, would we ever talk the way we used to? I doubt.
