Broken Shards

Flirting drew us to each other

Passion fueled us for a time

A deep friendship bonded us

It was a perfect forever

You and me

But things fell apart

You slowly disappeared

Until I was completely lost

Just tell me if you are done

Stop dragging my heart around

Thank You

Because you took time for me

I opened up

Because you laughed with me

I became free

Because you told me you cared

I trusted you

Because you shut me out

I cried for you

Because you left me alone

I blamed myself

But because you hurt me

I will forever be wiser

Can I Hold Your Hand For Strength?

“Don’t rely on me.  I told you I am not reliable.”  He got into his car, slammed the door shut and was gone.  I stood there feeling disappointed, unwanted and small.  He had said just a short time ago that he would be there for me if I needed him… I need him.  I need someone to acknowledge that I am still a living being with worth.  And now he is changing his tune and making me feel like it is my own fault, that I never should have trusted him.  I feel so abandoned by someone I thought was a friend.  Maybe he will come around again.

That was nearly 10 years ago and I still think of him to this day.  He stepped into my life at a desperate time for me.  He stood by when I found out my Mom had died. He gave me his cat.  I still text him on his birthday… he never texts back anymore.  I still long for that friendship, it was one of the most honest ones I had ever had I thought.  But reality says I will likely never see him again, and that breaks my heart all over again.

April Fool

Our friendship is hanging on

Just by a thread

I think I should face the fact

You moved on

I have tried to stay connected

Any way I can

But our friendship is tenuous

At its best

I gave you the world and more

Because I cared

You took and took then disappeared

Unable to find

Too busy to be a friend to me

Any time I call

I guess you are only looking out

For number one

And I am the fool

Left behind

In Answer To Your Silence

I give and give, and give some more

And you have turned your back on my door

I have done all I can because I care

But you don’t even notice when I am not there

I tried to give you space to grow

But the truth I have come to know

Was that your kindness was always finite

And the way you treat me now is not right

So I will no longer try to fit in

To the small space you put me within

If you want me you know where I am

No longer will I cry while you don’t give a damn

Friends For… A While

We were a tight group of friends
Or so I thought
We all brought something
Different to the group
A gentle soul
A go getter
A wild child
And a quiet one
Yet somehow we all meshed
The problem was
There was only one
Who put forth effort
To keep the bonds strong
The nucleus of the group
The planner
And when she got sick
Things fell apart
No more gathering together
No more being there for each other
We became strangers
And the perfect friendships
Became just individuals lost and alone

Temporary Knight

Today you crossed my mind
And I remembered so much about you
Your kindness
Your humor
Your undeniable charm
Your wisdom
Your soft side
Your unexpected concern
We may not be a part
Of each other’s lives anymore
But you will always live
Deep within my memory
As a friend who rescued me

Here And Gone

You were there for me
At a time in my life
When I needed
Someone to care
Someone to notice
Someone to be a friend
You listened to me
You offered a hand
You gave advice
What I did wrong
Was to put you on a pedestal
And make you invincible
A legend in my mind
For you were just a friend
There for a moment
And gone in a blink of time
