The Fear of Change

Change always happens
Whether it is for the better or for the worse
And it makes me sad to think
That something you had with someone can totally disappear
All the great times and the memories, everything
Dumped down the drain like it never existed
And now I’m being replaced
After everything we have been through
All the fights and the laughs and the memories
I can’t comprehend why those don’t matter to you anymore
They mean the world to me
To have an amazing friend like you
But obviously, you don’t think they are a big deal
I question whether you are grateful to have me in your life
Or if you realize how much I do and say to make you happy
I know I should know that you appreciate me
But it’s just something I don’t feel
Are you doing this to make me feel jealous?
Because you know how I get
You pretend that your best friends with her
But is it that friendship spark really there?
Do you guys really have what we have?
I tell myself every day that it’s going to be ok
That no one could ever replace me,
But the more I sit on the sidelines and not say a word
The more scared I am of losing you and everything we’ve had
There will come a point where I won’t be able to take it anymore
Where I’ll breakdown and unleash my true feelings from within
And you will think that I’m crazy for thinking these things
But it’s how I feel and I can’t help it
For now though, I will just sit back and watch
And see how everything plays out
I will always be here for you even when you’re not for me
