I love this poem! It touches so close to home. It is like it was written for me. One of my friends found this poem and sent it to me. Myself and her both lost a very dear friend, she just up and basically left us. So yea this poem hits increadably close to home without a doubt.

CDS
This pome was awesome! It totally relates to a "friendship" breakup I went through with a friend of mine. I being a straight female and him a gay male. we were the closest friends until it all came to an end. How could I not see the things he did to me? How could I not see how bad he was for me? Why did I want him in my life so badly? I dont know, but I am now left with the pain to clean up. He used to say how he'd always be there for me and now I know the truth was that he'd be there when it worked for him and when it was convinate for him. Anyhow. thanks for sharing your pome.

whitney&amanda
your poem has touched our hearts in so many ways we cant count you keep writen em and well keep read em.
Manda
The poem that I read touched my heart so deeply. I lost my best friend about 6 months ago. We grew up together, did everything together. She was the only person I've ever been able to trust and now she has taken my heart and placed it under her foot and proceeded to squash it. I related to this poem more than any other that I have ever read. It was beautiful, yet sad. But truthful none the less. Thank you for sharing your work with us all.
Marion
It is sad to realise that someone has hurt us when we called them friend.
