Everything and Nothing

I realised today how much I have lost,
the people who once meant everything,
now are strangers,
and the people who were strangers,
now mean everything to me.

Why do things like this happen?
What ends friendships that are so strong that they seem able to last forever?
What makes someone want to be your friend in the first place?

When realisation hits, it hurts.

I whisper to myself as I sit in my room,
azure tears dripping down my face:
“Someone cares,
just not them anymore.”
But it still hurts,
it always hurts to lose a friend,
without even knowing why
or how
or when it happened.

And then everything goes kind of blank,
like someone stopped the clockwork of your heart,
and all emotion is impossible.

Then something happens,
you get a message,
and your hope rises,
thinking, ‘hey maybe they’ve come back’
you open it, and its just something dumb, or mean,
and you just feel betrayed,
its like a slap in the face.
And tears rush up to greet me again,
hello my old friends.
At least they are always there for me when something goes wrong.
