You left me here,
alone in the cold.
I can almost see the wind blow.
It brings back memories,
memories of you.
The way you used to smile,
you know, back we were two.
three musketeers minus one, "best friends".
The warth of your hug,
and those silly jokes you told,
while trying to cheer me up, force one smile out of me.
I opened up to you, telling you everything.
& now thinking back I realize...
you told me nothing.
Nothing worth knowing, anyway.
Whatever happened? Did you just get bored?
I'm not always cheery, not always interesting,
but I thought best friends was more than that.
Maybe I was too eager,
eager to believe I finally had someone,
some to call my best friend.
Because you...
you were the closest to it,
almost the closest I'd ever had.
& now,
now you're just every other "friend" in the hallway.
what does 'best friend' really mean?

Oh My Gosh.... I have a relationship JUST like this with a friend of mine. Thank you for putting it so eloquently into words. I love it!

I'm saddened but your plight.
Not every pain is similar and I can't say I lost a close friend.
Yet I feel the pain I had last year and your words
Strong with emotion brought them up.
Thank you for sharing I hope
That your plight.
Is over.

It's the worst feeling in the world. Feeling alone, forgotten about to people you once considered yourself to be so close with. When they don't even seem to give a shit after all the little moments and times you had together. Life is a mystery that likes to shove a shitload of surprises on you.

This made me feel like crying :( I've lost my best friend this year and last year it was a girlfriend that moved away and just forgot about me and goes off falling for some other guy. Like that. Not to mention many people I once trusted are gone. Beautiful poem my friend. I feel like never opening myself up to anyone again or trusting anyone again.

I thought you'd want to know that this poem made me cry
And also that not a single book or poem has ever made me cry before.

Your poetry really touches me. i can realate to this one. i have been moving around for so long, i became scared about making friends because i'm always leaving them. then i met a girl like me, and i opened up to her. i laughed and we understood each other. then she got me in a corner and told me she never wanted to be friends... i miss her.

but your poetry is absolutly awesome!
