So I learned.
To not call them your best friend unless they think of you the same way.
To not try to pry a friendship that has faded too far.
To not attempt to fit into a group that they love more than you.
To not act like you care about them. Because in reality, if they are not trying to sustain the loving and caring closeness that once existed 2 years ago, it’s time to let go.
And so I learned.
That it’s too late to try.
That we once were the greatest of friends.
But now I just stand back in loneliness.
