I still know you, right?

Was it all in my head?

I still know you, even if we don't talk much.

I still get to show you pictures of the frogs I pass,

I know what makes you smile,

It's just no longer me, I think.

I still 'know' you, I just respect your peace.

You said our lives were just going different ways,

So why does my heart hurt when I hear someone mention Percy Jackson?

You're still obsessed with him, I think.

I used to know you,

A small bit of me still does.

I still add you to my art,

That part of me still wants to be friends, I think.

I don't know you.

I finally said it,

I don't know what would make you smile

But this peace makes me happy, that I know.

    Tender, raw, and heartbreaking. You've written a believable story of a brittle/broken friendship, and I feel the narrator's heart snapping.
