"I don't think that being a strong person is about ignoring your emotions and fighting your feelings. Putting on a brave face doesn't mean you're a brave person. That's why everybody in my life knows everything that I'm going through. I can't hide anything from them. People need to realise that being open isn't the same as being weak."

- Taylor Swift

You've always been two people to me.
The person you are, and the person you pretend to be. 
I've kept one of you here, safe in my heart.

I can smile at smiles, even now. 
Even when I curse and cry at you
Even when I let you fade away into the depths of time
I can remember you, fondly. 

It is like I have kept my friend with me, eternally
And that is enough, enough for me
Enough that I can still smile at what used to be. 

for forgotten friends.
