Friends and Lovers

​You hadn’t really seen each other in years

You rarely talked anymore

And when you did

He could hear the obligation

And insincerity

In your voice at times

Reminiscent of small talk

With a former classmate

It was hard for him

So he barely reached out

It made his skin crawl

Friends and lovers

Some

For a lifetime

Some

For a season

And somewhere in between

There are those

That confuse the two
