Before It's Too Late

We were one person, one soul,
One mind when we were in high school
We lived within our own boundaries,
Lived by our own rules.
No one could come between us
We were stuck fast for all eternity
I was there to look out for you
While you were there to look out for me.
Never thought we'd drift apart
And yet we did against our will
The day we went our seperate ways
Was the day my heart went still.
Pent-up anger melted our bond,
Turned it to lava filled with bitter words,
Other peers planted ideas in our heads
Growing into the deadliest weeds ever heard.
Days turned to weeks, turned to months,
Turned to years, still unspoken words passed
Burning lava turned to ice cold hearts
Who knew how long it would last.
Now as I reminisce to myself
On the storm that destroyed my life
It dawns on me like the sunrise
Lying on my deathbed: this isn't right.
How can one soul break apart?
How can one heart make two and still beat?
How can one mind think different thoughts?
How can two lives run parallel, never to meet?
All those flamed up arguments
Seem somewhat pointless to me now
A diminished friendship seems more important
Guess it's too late to make up anyhow.
Wish I could see you once again,
Share the moments like we used to do,
Apologise a thousand, a million times.
I wish I could make up with you.
Talk and explain my reasons,
Turn back to love what is now hate.
I just want to regain my best friend

Painful write, but so exquisitely penned Keighley. You have a talent that many on the Den have yet to discover. Keep it going. You write, I'll read.
