    In between missing teeth and sucking charms,
    Hopping on blocks and playing rope,
    Running in huge fields by the highway
    Sitting in class Playin “ Perriope”

    I lost you along the way…..

    Between our first fights
    Scratching and kicking phony little ones
    Us not talking for the first time
    Silently sipping on Capri Suns

    I lost you along the way……..

    I think I lost you at 14
    When you told me you had “done” it…
    At first I was rushing to be like you
    And then I waited for it……
    Fast forward to the present….
    All you talk about is him … very same one..
    Though you’ve cried a river of tears
    Still you’ll love him til kingdom come…

    Slowly…..losing you…….

    I talk until I am blue
    Been girls with you since 7th grade
    You are like my sister..
    Like ice to lemonade…

    But I can’t talk anymore…
    All I do is stare and shake my head
    Wonder what happened to that lil girl
    Who doesn’t care about college…..would rather **** instead?

    Our lives are so different now
    So different that its no longer hard
    I gotta break away from you
    Before you drag me in your yard

    I lost you two years ago….
    I was just blind that I couldn’t see…..
    How could I be your best friend?
    There’s nothing left for me……….

    I…..lost……….you.

    yes indeed be not a fallower but da leader of ya destiny
    her dynasty was a myth of foul play and give away
    da game of wanting but u see and knoweth of
    so now u move pass the darkness into the light
    dis indeed is alright .....watching ova u i am above

    I'm really feelin this cause it took me back. I think almost everyone has this kind of friendship end. It is so vivid that I almost feel like I'm back in 9th grade again. I hadn't thought of my old best friend in years, but this made me wonder what's up with her.

    Aww, SwtT, this is sad, but very tightly posed, talented sister. You have shown your strength and willingness to learn a valuable lesson, that sometimes we grow away from people we love and have to move on. Stay strong to your own voice and your own path. Much love.
