death isn’t the only way to lose someone you love. i lost my closest friends when i graduated high school. i lost my friends when they moved away to foreign countries. i lost my friends to misunderstanding and conflicts. i lost the boys i once loved to prettier girls. i lost faith in love with broken relationships and broken hearts. i lost my innocence to the cigarettes i smoked under peer pressure. i lost myself last summer to stupid drunken mistakes. i lost so much in the past year yet you’ve only asked me if i am okay when i lost someone to death.
death isn’t the only way to lose someone you love.
