A Poem by Vxrtuoso
"

late night thoughts about my best friend and I

"

I get caught up in a lot sometimes

time really is fleeting and 

keeps leaving so quickly like

uh

like my f*****g hair elastics they just up and disappear when I let go of them

how does that happen


And is that a s****y analogy

for what might happen to you?

probably yeah.

definitely.


I really don't want to embody the

needy best friend trope.

jealous!! of a man I don't even know


But you know him

you know him and you like him

I'm proud

I'm happy, you deserve to be those things


But.


S**t, dude

is this what it feels like to be thirty and alone

while your friends are getting

married???

but eighteen and living with your parents 

and 

your friends are still living in your hometown

and

how long will this last?

before I have to let you

go?


I want you to myself

cause we only had each other for

so many years.

no homo.

but you know that


I don't want to be alone

I don't want to lose you

I don't want to keep holding you back

I don't want to hover like both our parents do


Afraid of giving away the one thing they've worked so hard to keep 

theirs


Will he know you like I do?

I hope so.
