Scary movies late at night
Chocolate chip pancakes with melted syrup
Outside excursions
Mud fights
Creative videostars
Trampolines and loud music
Hot lacrosse practices
Intertwined voices on happy evenings
Watching out windows clinging to each other scared silly from horror films


It’s so hard to forget you
Because all these memories
Shine bright in my night
Like a fire in the darkness
It’s so hard to forget you
Because every time I try
I’m reminded of these beautiful times
And now I’ve come to realize
I live for these beautiful lies
I live for these beautiful memories
I live for this beautiful pain
And though our time has come and gone
I still love to think back
And remember how beautiful our friendship was
Before it spoiled
We were beautiful and rare
Like the Night Blooming Cereus flower we were stunning
Not just stunning, but show-stopping amazing
And then we died out
The brightest flames burn out the quickest

  • Comment from author about the poem: Every poet needs a muse, a piece of darkness, a piece of light. I was best friends with a girl named Grace, we were so, so close. And then she left me for another person. Just sort of ditched me. So I took that darkness she'd given me, and I turned her into my muse. Most of my poetry is about her, like this one.

    WELCOME SILVERWOLF (Beautiful pen name) Thanks you for a perfect opening poem but so so sad. As we progress through life we meet someone who is perfect for us and then (for whatever reason) they disappear from our lives. Their memory is our LIGHT their absence is our DARKNESS. Your winsome poem describes this experience and its consequences perfectly. Your first stanza recalls perfectly all the memories you shared with a perfect friend. I can empathise with the opening line of your second stanza "It's so hard to forget you" in my experience it's impossible ! I love the reference to the "Night Blooming Cereus Flower" beautiful and rare to describe the quality of your friendship. "Not just stunning but show-stopping - amazing .......! This is a beautiful heartrending poem thanks for sharing. Please write more ! BRIAN
