My Bestest Friend

Hey there! This post was written in 2006, so it may contain information that is no longer accurate or thoughts that no longer reflect how I feel. As human beings, we're constantly learning and bettering ourselves through experiences and interactions with the world and each other.

I keep posts like this around for historical purposes and to prevent link rot, so please keep this in mind as you're reading.

A tragic ending, so absurd
You listened to my every word

Shattered dreams we've painted black
A one-way road, no turning back

Down the hall an echo roars
Sounds of anger, slamming doors

Pictures broken on the ground
Shards of glass spread all around

Mirrors cracked and chairs tipped over
So much for my four leaf clover

A different place now, somewhere new
A chance for me to be with you

It seemed so nice, a pleasant start
For two who shared a broken heart

The sidewalk circles 'round the block
We follow quick, a steady walk

You hold my hand, it disappears
The nighttime shadows drown my fears

I feel my heart, it's beating slower
The temperature, it's getting lower

My thoughts are frozen, cold as ice
A single breath does not suffice

This bitter ending we both know
Is buried in the freezing snow

Along with all those wrongs and rights
All those sleepless, winter nights

But in the end, one thing is real
Despite the scars, our wounds will heal

And if the cold doth take me here
I will not suffer, have no fear

I know our dreams weren't meant to be
But thanks for loving me faithfully

And just remember, if this is the end
You'll always be my bestest friend
