Losing A Friend

Even your best friendships don't last forever; cherish them while you can.

Losing A Friend
Gerald Ferinas

Our fingertips brushed only for a moment,

Too little, too late,

The void between us gaped open,

I never thought it'd be like this, not ever,

But it seems like the world wanted to wait.

No longer close, just far,

Independence demands separation,

Friends yearn for companionship,

And we severed the bond right at the hip.

At the cost of our close connection,

It left a door in my heart ajar,

I die gradually every day,

Knowing what we possessed was worth lifetimes,

One mind, one soul, two bodies, halves of one another,

Personalities split down the center, a sister to your brother,

A spark, so small, with melodies of chimes,

Diminishing into silence, taking hearts away.

Lives overwhelmed and communication ceased,

Hearts longing found others, a different perfect match,

In understanding death, you understand life,

Knowing that it's necessary to fend off strife,

We intertwined with others, desiring to attach,

Found our one and only, and all other things decreased.

I personally love using song lyrics as my Instagram captions, especially from songs that I love or that mean a lot to me, and I happen to love Harry Styles and all of his songs! So I made a list of lyrics from each of his songs that you could use in your next Instagram caption.

Everyone's been here. And, truthfully, it sucks. But in order to move on and get past something you need to allow yourself to feel it for what it is--all of the heartbreak and pain--and then you can start to take steps move on.
