Grow up

Old words
Tucked away
Like ideas in the back of my mind

Memories forgotten
In light of the present
I forgot memories could be so unkind

I don't want to feel
I don't want to think
Of the friendship we used to share

I loved you
And you loved me
But now only half the love is there

This pain inside
I wish I could cry
But no tears come to my eyes

We used to laugh
We used to hug
Now all our smiles ar lies

You've moved on
By holding yourself back
With attractions that I can't show up

I don't want to move on
I want friendships to last
I guess this is what it feels like to grow up.
