Losing A Piece Of My Soul

I came to you the hour I was in pain
Looking for answers, I cried to you in vain.

I shared the many skeletons hiding in my heart,
I knew then you'd be my friend,
I knew it from the start.

Troubles ran like rivers, flowing through my life,
You picked the pieces up and help me through my strife.

When home wasn't home to me no more,
You opened up your heart, and opened up the door.

We cried into night until the early morn.
We solaced each other's pain and shared our many thorns.

As time flew, the air grew thick,
I saw our friendship fading, and my heart grew sick.

The day had arrived,
When it was time to say goodbye.

Now I sit alone,
reminiscing the past I'd blown.

This poem really touched me because I think a lot of people can relate to it. I am going through something similar so I could relate to losing a best friend. It's happened to me a few times before.
Kelly
i really like this poem because it relates to what had happened to me. I had a bestfriend and then one day she called me and she told me that she didn't wanted to be friends with me anymore. She said not even friends anymore. after the call all i did was cried because i didn't know what to do. All i knew was that things were going to be different.

I once fell in love with ny best friend. We shared everthing together just as you and your friend had. We knew of this love we and for one another but knew nothing could ever happen due to our situation. But out love 4 eachother burned so bad inside of us. we had plan to grow old together but he faded away and i never knew the real reson why but he killed himself and i was forced to say good-bye. so i know how you feel

i lost a boy as a friend because he found out that i liked him,and know he is dating a girl he barely knows and i known him for two years,and i try to explain to him why can't we just be friends but he ignores me i cry and and listen to love songs whenever i see and picture of him,and i cried when i read your poem because the memories me and Zachary had are to painful to remember,and even though we were never together he was maybe still is my first love.
