The Breakfast Club, then and now.
I think back to how things were when you first came around. When you loved me forever. You were so beautiful. The passion you had for everything you did. How you loved to drink coffee an sit down with a good book. How you’d recommend books to me. How your favorite thing was driving around listening to music, bonding with me by your side. I can’t remember the exact day when you weren’t that person anymore. I just remember things slowly transitioning to who you are now. Our long car drives to no where became a drive to a destination with me looking out the window or staring at you while you kept on driving. Our long walks downtown started to become an in and out coffee trip. Our long conversations became me talking while you just listened. Looking back now, I’m not sure how I didn’t see. I was too busy loving you to ever see you not loving me. And I can’t remember how it was to be loved now. I can only remember feeling it at one point. It wasn’t a dream, I just keep telling myself. It was there at one point. But I didn’t see it leave in time to say goodbye. I remember the nights we’d laugh and drive and nothing else existed, eventually that ended. Everything was still on your mind while I was with you, while I sat there admiring your fake smile. And just like that, it was all over. It was over for a long time before things walked away. It was like an abandoned. Slowly falling apart, never collapsing all at once. And now I see all the things I didn’t when they should have been visible. Now I see I was the only one there. You left a long time ago. I just slowly got used to it. But now that abandoned building has collapsed. All at once. No structure to be found. And now, I’m moving faster then I ever have before. Looking back at pictures of us and feeling numb when I see my reflection. I can’t remember you. You became a stranger. What once meant the world, is gone. And just like all the people who knew that abandoned building before, memories are the only thing that won’t change. And all the new people who go by that collapsed building, will never know how beautiful it once was.
