About the Poem

This is a poem about losing a best friend to shallow jealousy. Keep in mind all that is important to you. If you squeeze and hold on too tightly to your friends, eventually they will release their hold.

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.

hi i just lost a friend and i miss her so badly we had a big fight over her changing for the bad not the good n she wont text me or anything and that poem means so. thank you
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.
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.
very good but a littel sad

this poem touched me because my neices boyfriend just passed away last year and it was on my brothers birthday and it was a hard and long memories that will be with us until the day that i die. thank you for writing this poem i think it will touch alot of peoples hearts!
i love your poem because on Feb 11 of 2005 I lost a close friend in a car accident and i really liked it.
I just lost one of my best friends. She got O. T. and today she went to tell us goodbye and it was devastating. While I searched to this poem I found the exact words that described my pain.
me and josh all the way right now hopefully when I send this to him things will change. luv my lil brother 4 eva no matter what.
I rank it a 9 it's great it brings out many emotins and make people feel like there you. Theres no way I can write like that its so amazing. Great,Amazing,Treffic,Outstanding,theres so many words I can't spell or think of so great to great o - my gosh its treffic peace and keep doing it.
I absolutely loved your poem. It made me think of how quickly and easy it is to screw up and lose my best friend. I love her so much but she won't talk to me. I don't mean to hurt her I just tend to not think before I act. Hopefully I'll figure out how to mend our friendship bak. But I really hope I'm not to late. You are a great writer and I dream to be a writer someday. You are very inspiring so I just want to to know I think you are an amazing writer.
i think this is a great poem the lines go together it touched me and i think that this is more than great like i love poems that or like this one and you made me friends with many more that really did not like me thanx
This is a REALLY good poem. I liked it because it reminded me of what I'd blown. my fault but I'll never tell her.
hiya its da best poem about friendship
This poem has touched my heart because I have recently lost a great friend who has taught me to live and has said goodbye to me without any reason.
i liked it b/c i had a friend we grew up together we done everything together and well one day she got her first real boyfriend when she was 17 and now they are marriend and have a kid and she wont have anything to do with me why i dont know she just quit having anything to do with anyone. this poem just really makes me think about how we use to be.
I relate to this poem because I blew my friendship with my best friend over something petty, and am having a hard time dealing with it. I would like to have her back as my friend, but the stubborness I am faced with is hard to deal with. I made a mistake and have fessed up to it, but there is still something that won't bring her back to me. It wasn't a mistake I made with her, just one in my life that everyone else BUT HER has accepted. This poem touched me, and I have sent it to her. Hopefully it will touch her as well. Thank you.
Great poem! i rate 8 out of 10 : )
This poem dipicts exactly how i feel right now about a once very close mate
i lived your poem, and i'm stilling going through it and it's soo hard for anyone to say goodbye to someone that means soo much to them and have been there for them for soo long and then just have everything fall out of your life and that person that means the most to u be gone i thought your poem was well written brilliantly emotional and if u have any more like this i hope u send it to the website so i can read it again
i like this poem. its touching. i made a few poems myself. especially since i lost my very "good" best friend. :-( it has that SOMETHING in it and i like it alot
I loved your poem, it explains everything i am going through. It touched me greatly
this poem toched me because something of this sort happened to me a few days ago i feel empty and devoid. This poem is excellent!
It's so beautiful and touchimg i just loved it.
It is very touching and certainly very meaningful. It can melt any heart and fix friendship in no time. It is one among those that are cherishable.
even though i'm just a student, choosing poems for a school project, i thought about my friend ship with my very very very best friend, The Genius(her nickname) and even though we are best friends, we always have arguements. now she wants to break our best-friendship, and just be normal friends. i dun want to. she's tooooo good of a friends to lose. it's all my fault, and i don't know how to mend it. it's hard. :( i wish i could mend it. i hope The Genius would forgive me. Jasmine, i want to be a good poet like you when i grow up. although i want to be an actress. your poem touched my heart, and i can't wait till i read more of ur fabulous, fantastic poems!
I think this poem is awesome! I come back and look at it all the time. It really describes the things I am going through in my life right now with my best friend. It helps think clearly about the situation when I start freaking, and it keeps me from saying this I will regret to her.
i really liked your poem. it really touched me. i lost my best friend two and half weeks ago. i have been looking on the internet for something like this and i found it, i write stuff myself but i couldnt write one about her becasue it owuld hhave been too hard.
hey. i really liked your poem. you have a talent for expressing your feelings through writing. i know what it's like to lose someone you love. i lost a close guy friend in a car crash. it has been 2 years, and i still haven't clued in and realized that he isn't here anymore. keep writing and don't give up. you have a great talent.
You have a really good talent in writing, dont give up
This poem touched me, i really felt what you were saying. for a really long time i tried to describe how i felt about losing my friend and ur poem did this. Thank you
I love this poem. It made me remember all my friends that I met over the summer that I won't get to see until summer comes again.
You know. This poem just really hurt me. I just reminisce the times that we we're like sisters. Real sisters. But then. I blew it all up. Like, in a short time. BANG! It's all over. I didn't know what I did wrong but they started to do threats. They say insults and everything to me. In a short notice. She was the worst enemy I could have. That she was like a time-bomb that could explode in any minute and tell of my secrets. I do not know what to do. Life is so cruel.
Your poem was really touching I know how it feels I had a friend and we had been best friends for 11 years ever since I was 3 and she was 2,then last year we went our seperate ways and left the special bond we shared behind we grew up and grew out of each other and the worst part is we see each other everyday at school and we don't even greet each anymore.
nice poem and i like it
i love this! i love it very much.
this poem is fantastic, everything in the poem is exactly what i have just gone through it has helped me come to terms with losing a really close friend thankyou
It was a great poem. It talked about some of the same things that I am going through right now
this poem is so sad and touching. i had a friend who recently commited suicide and this peom really touched me. you are very talanted. thamkyou ofr creating this poem
Shana Dean
This was a really good poem but sometimes we can't blame ourself for things that happen. Sometimes they are just meant to happen
that poem just reached out to me and it really dscribed what i went through when my best friend moved
It is such a wonderful poem! Jasmine,you are a talented writer!^^
This poem relates to how i feel cause me and my bestfriend got in a fight a while back and we still aren't talking and i know that it is mostly my fault why we aren't talking right now i hope someday we will speak again.
Good Job.
This has totally just happened to me today and I feel like crap. I don't know what to do but your poem has helped me and I feel a bit better. I love reading and writing poetry so keep it up.
Wow your poem is so true. I had a friend for 13 years but things changed and I haven't spoken to her in a couple of years now. I would do absolutely anything to get our friendship back but I know that it could never possibly be done. I love your poem and you're really talented!
This is so sad. It reminds me of my best friend jennifer. I blew our friendship last year. I still can't help but remember our many nights that we share. your such a great poet.
This is so true. Im going to email this to a friend that I lost because of pure jelousy. Ive called and called but she wont return my calls, and i dont blame her. Shes going off to war on the 6th of Jan, and all I wanna say is. IM SORRY CHARMAINE.
touched me. with in. deep with in.
i can relate to the poem because my best friends are moving away and we were close but know our friend ship is fading away
i love this poem! its really good. when i read it, it made me think about the friend i'd jus lost. i ditched her 2 b popular and when i came back she told me it was over. ne ways thanks 4 writing this poem, it helped me thru a bad time
This poem is so sad. That happened to my friend Danielle and I. yOU'RE VERY TALENTED.
This is a great poem. I now see that I should let go, and just let them be. I hope no one has to go through the type of pain I am right now. Do you think we'll ever be friends again??
This is a great poem to me and means a lot. I have now thought of my frienships more carefully and made sure that I have friends that I can trust.
i luv this poem cuz it is sooo true. I understand it completly and it sums up all my feelings in one. GREAT POEM:-)
I think this poem is a reflection of my current situation and this is truly how I feel but can't express it. I thank you for this because I now understand what I am feeling. A friend lost is never easy but sometimes some people have to go. The tension otherwise would be incredibly unbearable.
I read your poem and i started crying. It was so true and the day before i read the poem my freind and i decided to stop being friends. I really didnt like the idea of it but it seemed necassary. I just wanted to tell you that i put this in my homepage but i gave you full credit for it. You deserve it because you are a wonderful writer!
that poem was great! i've written my(best friend) poems before, they were great just they weren't goodbye poems and today i had to say goodbye because she just quit being with me because of my boyfriend (i spend too much time with him) so she says. she quit looking at me when i tried to talk to her, she basically quit caring. she tells other people that she don't even care about me no more, and then she becomes a friend to my face, so i'm tired of still trying to go between her and him and she talks behind my back anyway so thank you for helping me out with that poem it was exactly what was going on in my life. keep writing your great!
Hey,i think this poem was great. It just reminded me of a good friend that i had and that it faded away. We were so close,i use to cry because i had alot of problems i was having and he would always be there for me,but not anymore. ANYWAYS this poem was great =)
This poem expressed exactly the way i feel. I can really relate to the way you feel.
it wuz really touching cuz now i know i am not alone and it helps alot cuz its really hard to get thro this without sum1 to help u
Wonderful! its really touched my feelings.
i absolutely loved the poem! it totally relates to how i held my former best friend too tight. i only recently found out that i was right to do so, but the poem made me see just how bad i messed up back then.
*this poem really touched me. Our friendship with my bestfriend faded because of my misdoings. and I have to set her free.*
This poem was really good. I lost my best friend almost a year ago over jealousy.I have a new best friend now and I'm trying to avoid the jealousy thing and when i read this poem, it really helped me a lot..thanx =)
This is a very real thing for me!
Thank you for this poem-i relate with it too much. Its hard i know but struggle on and eventually things will get better (i hope) :)
that was wicked!
Hi I love your poem at the time my best friend and I are having problems. This is the perfect way ro tell her how I feel.
wow.that was a beautiful poem. it remindes me of how close my friends and i were. but that was last year. its hard to believe how fast we split..just because we grew up and found new friends. i miss them so much. this really describe my friendship with them. keep on writing!
hEY THERE Your poem is very nice keep up the good work
This was one of teh best poems about a lost friendship that i have ever read. I really liked it. I hope that Jasmine writes more poems like this, she has a natural talent for writing poetry.
I liked this poem alot. I describes exactly what i feel. It reminds me of my life where i lived before this. (my good life)
I was moved by the poem.
I thought the poem was really moving and described what I had with someone once. It was just beautiful.
"Losing A Piece Of My Soul", really hit something deep inside me. I haven't spoken to my best friend from high school (graduated-99')for almost a year now. I have written many poems before, but i could never write about her. Our friendship ended in jealousy and to our disadvantage, we were both very stubborn. This poem made me cry harder than i have cried in a long time. I do miss her, and i will always love her, but things will just never be the same. I found her e-mail address (hopefully it's the same one) and e-mail this poem to her. I just want her to know that I still think about her, and thanks to you maybe she will.
I really liked you poem it was really good. =)
This poem is really sweet and means alot to me.
This poem has touched me. When my husband and I married 6 years ago we were so close. Now he has drawn apart and taken away the closness we once had. He never understood the true meaning of friendship. I amd giving him a copy of this poem and hopfeully he will understand how I feel.
I saw my friendship fading so I sent this poem to my Best friend. We both cried at the thought of sying goodbye! And because I sent her this poem we are still Best Friends! (maybe we're even closer now)
this poem really relates to me and my bestfriend. because of my jealousy, i lost her. i still regret that day and wish we were still close. but no matter how hard it is to let go, i guess i have to move on.
Absolutely beautiful...
I thought it was beautiful. The words were what I wanted to say but couldn't great poem.
that wa a very good and interesting poem. it brought me and one of my friends really close. now were going out. thankx
