But I don’t want to sleep
When you are around and our time is always so short.
Together we laugh and we get attached.
Only to feel disappointed when life gets too busy.
For even a simple hi is becoming just a pass-through.
I know the push and take is strong and it’s like we’re fighting back but what for at this point.
It feels like a losing battle of hope things will be different.
But it’s not for you were never ready for me to come back and now that I am.
Everything is crumbling and sometimes we’re both trying to pick up the pieces.
Of this friendship but lately
we just leave the pieces until next time.
