Nothing But A Shadow - Poem by C.M. Benny


Here we are walking
yet not talking
silence silence

we've grown apart
yet here we are
walking, but not talking

we are together
yet far apart
silence silence

I watch our shadows
with a sour look
slipping farther apart

This cannot be
what happened to you and me
silence silence

What happened over the summer
you found a job
and we stopped seeing eachother

I wish our shadows would be close again
like when you and me were best friends
silence silence

    so true i hate how friendships grow apart but i seppose its just a part of life. we all change over time and therefore change what we want from friends. (Report) Reply
