I miss you but i don\'t think i know you anymore.
you ebbed away like the sands on a shore.
are six years past the ones to blame?
or can the gods of time actually change man\'s core?
last we spoke you weren\'t the same.
i felt like the victim of some wicked game
where the thing at stake was my own ego.
you see, i expected a child from long ago,
from those years that we helped each other grow,
when we ran as fast as our legs would go,
when our minds would dance wherever the winds would blow.
a time where i worried not about reaping what i\'d sow.
memories of a soul once pure and white as snow.
i expected my old childhood hero,
but instead i got a man that i did not know.
i could feel it was you inside,
but it still wasn\'t the same.
i only had myself to blame
for off of memories of times that died.
the thing that mattered the most
was believing you\'d return exactly the same,
so i held on to your memory like an old ghost.
but the more i chased your ghost the quicker it would fade away.
i began to fall apart when you decided not to stay
i\'d loose a piece of myself with each light of day.
and still, time after time that image appears in my mind
and deep down that\'s the image i\'d rather hold onto,
of memories where skies were always blue,
where i would\'ve said the words that i couldn\'t say,
where people were never pushed away,
my faith and devotion gone astray,
and where we spoke of madness on a rainy day.
just remembering my best friend

Just like I told Dannytello after commenting on one of his deviations...I wish that you can vote "Love Deviation". If so, I would rate this one as one of my favorites. In fact, I'm going to put it in that catergory right now.

I can say that I totally relate to that..but I haven't had a friendship for that long. However, I would like to send you a peom that is directed towards one or two particular person. It was written about my first best friend.

Thanks bro.

This makes me think back to all of the memories I've had with my best friend and how much we've grown apart as well. Great emotion - "I felt like the victim of a wicked game". No one could have said it better. Nicely done :) (Smile)

so i held on to your memory like an old ghost.

Josh is on fireClap ! I remember seeing that one in your book. I really like it, but if I wasnt such a loner by nature I would probably be able to relate to it =) (Smile) .

I like this poem because it makes me think of my best friend (is that what you intended?) I think that sometimes it's better just to hold on to the memorie.
