You Are Not Who I Used To Know

The laughter between us, the kind that made our bellies hurt

The kind that made tears run down our cheeks 

Gone 

The respect that we had for each other 

You know, the kind where you gave me space when I set a boundary

The kind where I stayed quiet to listen to you express all that you feel 

Gone 

The love that consumed us 

You know the kind of love we tried to define but could not find the words for 

That deep love 

Gone 

The you that you used to be 

And the me that loved being around that you 

Gone 

You are not who I used to know 

The man I loved 

Gone
