    YOU AND I WERE LIKE
    PEAS IN A POD
    INSEPERABLE
    A BOND UNBREAKABLE.
    SHARING TEARS AND SMILES
    HUGS AND LAUGHS SECRETS AND
    PROMISES.
    ALL THAT WE PLANNED ON
    DOING FOR YEARS TO COME.
    BUT TIME IS A FUNNY THING.
    OVER TIME WE GREW UP AND GREW OUT
    AND GREW APART.
    AND NO MATTER HOW HARD WE
    TRY THINGS AREN'T QUITE THE
    SAME ANYMORE.
    YOU LOOK AT THINGS SO
    DIFFERENT AND I HEAR YOUR
    WORDS A LOT LOUDER.
    BUT MY HEART STILL
    CLINGS TO THE
    MEMORIES THAT MAKE UP
    OUR RELATIONSHIP.
    IT SEEMS WEIRD TO NOT
    BE ABLE TO GO TO YOU
    AND TO TELL YOU
    WHAT I'M THINKING
    OR HOW I'M FEELING.
    SOMETIMES I WONDER WHY
    WE WERE IN SUCH A RUSH
    TO GROW UP
    WE GAINED SOME THINGS
    BUT WE LOST A LOT.

    ...very heartfelt. :crying:

    This poem reminds me of many people I've had the pleasure of knowing along the way who have given me so much by their mere presence.

    I'd love to hear you read this piece in voice chat. :D

    :thanks: for sharing a part of you with us.

    :toast:

    Some things that are lost can't be regained, hopefully we gain some wisdom along the way. Hard lesson to learn, I liked the way you brought this.

    I use poetry to say what I feel. It is so easy for me write it down and I
    was trying to explain myself to a friend of mine and that is what I came up with so thanks all for "listening" and understanding. :wave:
