i thanked you. for your friendship. for your loyalty. your laughter. your patience. i left things unsaid. you did too. it’s better that way. for everyone. for you. me. them. i forgot about it. pushed it out of my psyche. resumed life. did we get over it? did i? did you? or are the feelings suppressed? buried underneath song lyrics, basketball scores, and viral videos. i can’t find it. or maybe, i just don’t want to. maybe we’re both lying to ourselves. to each other. to the world. if we keep denying, maybe it’ll just fade. maybe.
