we aren’t living

A busy intersection. The streets are filled with people despite the late hour.
This isn’t a special holiday, but why do you look so happy there?
Walk past, forget, keep going, remember, don’t look back.

The hallways seem to crush me,
as I walk behind and see all your backs turned on me.
You forget me so easily, how were we ever together?
I hint at a ‘hello’
but you just keep walking and ignore my wave.
What happened?
Did we just drift apart?
Walk past, forget, keep going, remember, the times we were together.

Do you remember what they said about us?
We were going to meet new people, make new friends, find better people.
You were going to meet new people, make new friends, find better people.
was going to meet new people, make new friends, find better people.
But I didn’t. I thought we were going to be together through all this.
But you did. You met new people, made new friends, found better people.
Walk past, forget, keep going, remember, just to forget yet again.

The same busy intersection. The same streets filled with people.
Except you’re not there.
Why can’t I see that you’re happy?
Walk by, wave, “hello,”, keep going.

“Hi.”
