Distance

He held my hand and gave me hope

Then he showed his true colors

Little by little his cynical side began to show

He distrusted everyone, including me

He began to think I had other things in mind

And he put a lot of space between us

I greatly missed the friend I had

And asked him why so distant

His answer was more distance

And I became all alone again

**

One day he stopped to see me

And gave me what he’d borrowed

I felt like this was the final goodbye for some reason

He stood there at a distance and softly said goodbye

I fought back tears and desperately wanted a hug

But he turned around and walked out the door.

And I never saw that cynical man again.
