Who We Used to Be

We still talk, but we don’t know each other. Not really. You were my best friend.

We were inseparable. We went through high school and college together and I will always treasure those “domestic” nights where we roomed together. Those were nice. I am also glad our friendship survived living together 😛

So many memories, some good, some bad. I still love you. I think I always will.

But things are different now. We’ve adjusted to a reality where we don’t know each other. I don’t know your life, you don’t know mine.

I miss what we had sometimes. You taught me a lot about life. It was nice having someone to hang out with and I was comfortable with you. I had your back and I knew you had mine when it really mattered.

I remember a night at 2 am, I helped you do laundry because E had puked everywhere on her 21st birthday. I think that was when I knew that you guys weren’t going to last, strangely enough.

I don’t regret it. All the chaos? I made it through and so did you. I never thought I would see this day and I am so glad I did.

I used to know you so well. It was almost like sometimes, we could read each other’s minds, we knew what the other person was thinking.

I don’t know you now. I’m glad we still talk though. I want you at my wedding if I ever have one. I want you to be there. You were such a big part of my life. Biking around the city, walking on Main Street in the winter, and everything in between.

I love you and I always will.
