We hit our life’s reset button around the same time,
And therefore started the many parallels of our existence.
We were mentor and student, and eventually friends.
With our interconnected circles, it was inevitable then.
We were two sides of the coin,
And yet we got along like cheese and wine.
We spun around and danced in dizzying lights,
Sang our hearts and feelings out.
We fell in love respectively and got scorned.
But that’s alright, our children were born.
We were each other’s support for years on end,
Until that day I became someone you can’t depend.
So now our connection was severed, our friendship no more.
My laughable excuse for poetry is now just a memorial for what was before.
