6.22.23 (day 22 - summer of poetry)

we say we’ll stay friends,

but you’ll never be my friend.

we say we’ll stay in each others lives.

but we aren't supposed to stay like this >>

forever trapped in the idea of what we were,

in the dream of what we could've been.

we see each other,

and we don't say hello...

at least not how friends should.

friends don't say it like we do.

silently trapped in my lips,

only spoken through touching yours.

friends don't moan each others names

while getting tangled up in their arms.

friends don't say i miss you with tears in their eyes,

they don't say i love you while leaving lipstick prints.

we made this decision,

so why can't we go our separate ways?

i need to get over you,

not on top of you.

why do we have to say goodbye? why can’t we just stay - like this forever.. in our bubble, in this fantasy. why do we have to go our separate ways, when we want so much to stay intertwined. why do we
