    It Hurts

    It hurts so much that even the memories turn ugly. Losing that one person who said they'd be your bestfriend forever. Knowing you were once their first choice and now your probably the last. I never want to let myself hurt like that again, it's mental suicide and I won't put...

    You meet someone. You two get close.

    It's all great for awhile. Then someone stop trying. Talk less. Awkward conversations. The drifting. No communication whatsoever. Memories start to fade. Then that person you know becomes that person you KNEW. That's how it usually goes, right? Sad isn't it.
