Missing: My Best Friend - Poem by Jai Wadams
You walk by and I wonder why
We don’t talk, not anymore.
We’re not the same, completely different
With different names and different views.
We’re no longer crews, but that’s old news.
We used to be the best of friends
Through all times, thick and thin.
We had our fights, that was then.
But always made up and were together again.
Then you were drifting away.
I tried to hold on, but there was no way
With your slippery hands and slippery ways.
And then one fight, that’s all it took
It was my temper and your heated hood.
I tried to say I was sorry, but to you, I was dead.
You wouldn’t listen so I tried again.
But it was no good.
My apology you let drift away on the wind.
Your dismissal was the bomb.
Our friend had gone all wrong.
Those ten years lost its song.
You forgot as if it had never happened.
Those long afternoons had disappeared
Along with all those years.
Now I don’t know who you are.
You may have changed but haven’t come that far.
Yes you have friends but are they good?
Do they accept you or just change your looks?
Is this really who you are or do you just want to be like them?
I wish I still had my friend.
I still look back, how about you?
All the good times are still in view.
I remember those laughs and the sighs.
We stuck together through all of the trials.
I still want to talk to you.
I want my friend back, how about you?
Is this what our friendship has come to?
