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

Used

I used to be –

Ecstatic when you would be visit me.

 

I used to be –

Embarrassed when you would compliment me.

 

I used to be –

Enthralled when you spoke to me.

 

But now I know it was me who was

Used.

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
