forever

and we swore

with a pinky promise

that we’d be

best friends

forever.

then came

a move across town;

that’s how long

forever lasted.

 

and we swore

with tears and a hug and a grin

that we’d be

best friends

forever.

then came

a switch of schools;

that’s how long

forever lasted.

 

and we swore

with purest intentions

that we’d be

best friends

forever.

then came

that one boy;

that’s how long

forever lasted.
