loss of friendship (Remove filter)
It happens as quickly as it ends, a muffled slam and a splintering of cracks.
Night has fallen quickly, the dull glare of the streetlights hidden by the blinds.
I barely stir when it happens, only waking when footsteps race past my door.
“What’s happening?” I ask groggily, surveying the urgency of my parents.
My brother replies “A car crashed through our fence!”
With both excitemen...

Do you remember when we were kids
and time was just a staircase we couldn’t wait to get to the top of
A bunch of spoiled kids with lives of pure bliss
impatient, immature, imperfect moments of the past in place
Pictures of a camera, all frozen in such haste
Do you remember when we would play hide and seek
I would hide all of me and you would come and find
see me and stil...

1 Yes, I ran away!
It was so close to killing me.
I couldn't take the pain,
But you think I should have let it end me.
What kind of justice
is without trial?
What kind of friend
fights on the other side?
What kind of life?
2 And I couldn't...

I'm not going to tell you that I'm breaking apart.
I'm not going to show you where you've broken my heart.
Why am I always being risked by other people?
Shot down in flames from a safe distance.
I'm not going to let you back to work from inside.
I'm not going to be there, when you realise why.
I'm not going to see you when I see you around.
I'm not going to hear your sounds.

The revolving door of frienships hurts
When it clips you on the way out
Empty words fall on dead ears
And two people are left broken
Where did it all go wrong?
Both too afraid to ask
Both too kind to tell the truth
How do you tell someone who was once your dearest confidant
That their cals now fill you with loss
Phone rings and you see their name and panic

You don't have time and so
You're fading slowly from my life
Messages left hanging
Like smoke rings in cyberspace
But the fading is masked
By a feeling of liking and being liked
Which I tend to persist in
Because you still 'like' my stuff
As I do yours
And that seems to be a close enough equivalent

and dark clouds invade
raindrops fall at the
rain soaked feet..
The umbrella of friendship
tattered with holes
refuse to protect me today..
Thoughts run back
to another dark night,
where it rained as fiercely as now..
Yes, I was soaked, that day too
not from the umbrella- yet not tattered-
but from trying to protect a friend
from the cascading rain..

Sorry buddy for what's gone on
If only you had actually known
How much that I sacrificed for you
And this friendship that I thought was true
I honestly stood by you always
I was the friend that would have stayed
But in the end it was you that betrayed
Me in the most hurtful of ways
We had a history that we kept a mystery
Because it wasn't knowledge that we wanted freed
Why is that a...
