Friends to Strangers

Poetry By: nathanmarc12

Tags: Friendship

It is about how I lost a very close childhood friend after we grew up without any reasons or arguments.

Those were the days

when we ran freely in the meadows

watched crazy cartoons on the couch

and sang weird songs in the public

like there is no tomorrow


Those were the days

when we gossiped about our classmates

made fun of our teachers

and talked of our dreams and aspirations

like time is forever on our side



time does not side anyone

the earth will never stop spinning

and we have transitioned

from innocent little boys

into young men of diverse personalities


You found new friends in your new environments

you got absorbed into your own world

you started to distance yourself

you began to lead your life

without my companionship



You said you were busy negotiating businesses

when I asked you out for coffee

you said you were on the other side of the world

when you were just right there in the mall

choosing the better toothpaste

pretending you didn't see me


Why do you have to deceive me

I wonder

What demolished our solid friendship

I question

Do you really wish not to see me in life forever



these are the enigmas

that I simply cannot decipher

though they may seem trivial to others

they are worth more than any gold or silver to me


Gone were the days

when we share our joyful times together

when we celebrate our triumphant moments together

when we seek solace in each other's presence

during sorrowful periods


Do you remember

we once said Friends Forever


it is crystal clear that

we will never ever be

more than strangers
