We were friends, the best there could ever be.
We were friends and everyone could see.
He respected my feelings and I, his.
I could swear things will remain like this.
Until all I saw was his apathy.
Until he lost his empathy.

He knew me more than anyone could.
I thought I knew him too.
I wasn’t solid I was a drop of water in the ocean.
I wasn’t solid until he made my third dimension.
It was me, myself and him, the trinity.
Until he lost his empathy.

But soon his words and actions I couldn’t predict.
Soon it was like to him I didn’t exist.
He became a familiar stranger.
Maybe it’s his doppelganger.
Things changed, especially the chemistry.
He changed, he lost his empathy.

Empathy for me, sympathy I plead.
I needed answers unless I bleed.
He says he’s sorry, he says he’s back.
I fell for it, I wanted him back.
Maybe I needed clarity,
Maybe he still had empathy.

He says he’s back but I still wonder if I ever cross his mind
Many texts not replied but he didn’t mind.
“We will be together someday”
That’s what I said till I ran out of ‘somedays’
I had to get over him, my heart filled with antipathy
I was now certain, he had lost his empathy
