A Disarray of Pieces

By , Parish, NY
I just can't catch a break.
Sophomore year.
Already in tears.
What did I do?
Why is this happening?
I have my few friends.
Maybe one a little too close.
But what can I do?
My other friends seem to drift away.

I don’t even talk to you anymore.
We're strangers that used to be so close we could've been sisters.
We had our fights.
We tried to renew our friendship.
It only lasted a few weeks.
Was it something I did?
Was it something I said?
Maybe it's just the way life is.

We plan all summer, to get back together.
In reality, it would never work.
Too much damage done.
Too many influences.
Trust in question after numerous factors.
It lasted not even a week.
I should've known it wouldn't last.

Fighting is too exhausting.
Why can't it just be simple?
Life isn't simple.

Now I'm stuck.
Which side to take?
You are friends.
Will it tear you apart?
It all comes back to me.
Why is it always me?

Don't know what to do.
No where to escape.
No where to run to.
So many opinions invading my own.
So much to think about.
So many decisions to make.

Others make it look easy.
It's not easy at all.
How can you handle so much?
And do so little?
I'm just one of millions.
I just want to help.
But nothing goes right.
Will I ever be able to make a difference?
Maybe in someone's life?
I'm just a disarray of pieces.
