Hadn’t talked in a week – or so
This person was close,
But, situational changes
Why – play a gooseberry
When one can avoid it;

Didn’t want to be a party pooper
This was affecting – bad
Unfortunately or not, she didn’t know
Distance was building
Their happiness over mine – perfect!

Things we’d do for love,
Not romanticism kind
Just one shared between close friends
I hadn’t learned to love in halves
With this person, definitely won’t

Avoid and fade,
That’d be the plan
So far – so good
I’d let the devil’s advocate play out
So long, dear friend
