Ode to My Best Friend

When love came to be

I gave her some space and set her free

but it was not for her

it came for me

When the season changed

our lives were rearranged

and our friendship no more

Love remained

and left a stain

that cannot be wiped away

made a hole that nothing fills

keeps me warm, though I still get chills

because when love showed up

I went with the flow

I didn’t know we could still be

so I let her go

Alas, I let her go…
