Our Friendship is Over You Say

Our Friendship is Over, You Say? 
Our friendship is over, you say.  
You claim foul,  
But you pushed me away.  

I used to cry, wondering why?  
What's wrong with me?  
What did I do to make you leave?  

Now I know it is not me, but you!  
You are the one with the problem!  
If you say our friendship is over,  
Did we ever have one?  

I know what friendship looks like,  
And this is not it.

When Friendship Was a Lie

I stood by and watched 
And I didn't say anything 
And  sometimes I looked away 
 
My lips never moving 
My voice never making a sound 
In protest to your plight 
 
I never stood up and never spoke out 
I sat at my desk and watched and listened 
But never spoke out in your defense 
 
My heart hurt of the things they did 
My heart ached and I saw how they made you 
But too afraid to move 
 
So many people hurt and none of us could move 
We let them decide who we were 
And let them decide what we do 
 
Vile, heart retching acts and still, I did nothing 
We just followed the crowd 
And now all we have is regret. 
 
Where are you now?  
Will you forgive those who hurt you 
And those who just stood by 
Will you forgive me?

My Friend

How do I trust you, my friend?
How do I know the things you say are true?
How do I trust you, my friend?
How do I know the love we share is true?

Will you have my back?
Will you keep your word?
Will you fight for me, when I'm not around?
Will you help me when I fall?
Will lift me up and not tear me down?

How do I trust you, my friend?
How do I know the things you say are true?
How do I trust you, my friend?
How do I know the love we share is true?

Will I have your back?
Will I keep my word?
Will I fight for you, when you're not around?
Will I help you when you fall?
Will I lift you up and not tear you down?

How do I trust you, my friend?
How do I know the things you say are true?
How do I trust you, my friend?
How do I know the love we share is true?

I will have your back!
I will keep my word!
I will fight for you!
I will help you when you fall!
I will lift you up and not tear you down!
And you will know the love we share is true!

Trust No One

This is a poem about losing a friend. Sometimes we grieve a friend we lost but sometimes we grieve the friendship that was never there. It makes it difficult for us to open up again, but we need to be open. If we are not, then we lose the chance of making a real friend. 

No one to trust

Nowhere to go
I roam the streets looking
For help, for trust, for someone
To believe me and take me in

My heart is empty and hurt
From the pain of losing you
Losing what I thought was
Trust, hope and a friend

Naïve and stupid, now I trust no one
Are they all lies?

No Longer Run

I will no longer run after people.
I will no longer seek you out.
I will no longer worry and fret.
I will no longer care.

Life is too short to hold onto people,
Who doesn't want to be held onto.
Life is too short to work about,
Those who don’t worry about you.
Life's too short to seek out,
Those who won’t seek you out. 

I will no longer run after people.
I will no longer seek you out.
I will no longer worry and fret.
I will no longer care.

If I keep telling myself this,
Maybe I will listen.
Maybe I won’t feel bad,
When I am left in the dust.

In Silence

In silence I wait, wondering when the time will be when you come to me.
In silence, I wait, wondering what you are doing and if you are okay.

I am silent most of the time. I do not say your name, or speak of you at all.
I am silently waiting for that moment, the breakthrough when you come to me.
I am silently waiting and hoping that I am missed.

In silence, I sit thinking of you and praying that you are okay.
In silence, I wonder what could have been done.
In silence, I wonder if being silent is best.

I Lost

I lost
People I thought I would have forever.
I lost
Chats and talks I thought I would always have.
I lost
Though how do I get it all back, and do I even want it all back?
Socially impaired.
No idea how to make or keep friends.
Socially Impaired. 
With the world so busy, and my mind so confused.
Socially impaired. 
In this world of confusion. 

How do you move an acquaintance to a friend or a friend to a good friend? 
How does one keep friends and how does one make friends?
I lost a sense of myself and my own desires. 
I lost the nuances and gestures that help others to figure this out. 

I was lost, but now I am found. 
I Found
Strength in myself that I will have forever. 
I found 
Chats and talks I will have forever. 
I found
I love that will not quit and I never have to wonder where it went.

How Long Do You Wait?

How Long Do You Wait?

How long do you wait?

The agonizing silence.

The dread and dismay you feel as you wonder what went wrong.

The gloom and desperation you feel as you reach out to nothing. 

How long do you wait?

The harrowing silence. 

Dejection and grief you feel as you wonder what went wrong.

The sadness and heartache you feel as you reach out to nothing. 

The silence rings in your ears as you feel nothing. 

You reach out and grasp but it is only figments of what was. 

Always Alone

Good Friends

Good Friends

What do you want from a good friend?

What do you expect from a good friend?

A friend should always have your back.

A friend should stand by you and support you.

However, a good friend will support you,

They will also tell you when you are wrong. 

They call you out and give you advice, 

Even if it’s not what you want to hear.

Good friends should be treasured.

Good friends are hard to find.

Don’t be angry with them for telling you the truth.

Be thankful for they are the only ones who truly care.
