Friends come and friends go, but a true friend sticks by you like family.

Let me say goodbye
Stop asking why
I can't stop thinking of you
And can't  do what I want to do
Why won't you leave 
I'm not sure I believe 
You said it was the same for you
But do you feel like I do
I'm always sad
You were the best friend I ever had
We got so close
I never had to pose
Was what I was
And could tell you the cause 
But now I can not
My head feels like its in a knot 
I'm sorry it will end like this
I don't mean to dis 
I love you as a friend
But it has to end
I can't do anything 
Because you act like my wing
Right there 
And not going anywhere
But that is the problem
This seems to overwhelm 
The things I want to do now
Go ahead an ask how
It's what I want today
Tell your speech another day
Why do I always get stopped by you
It feels like you tell me what to do
But you aren't even here
I guess it is because you were so dear
Please just listen to me
I need you to let me be
You need to go away
There is no other way

hey! nice one! i want you to know that a poem just has to flow properly , it does not have to have a fixed rhyme scheme. try experimenting with irregular rhyming patterns. about the poem...i like the language and wording. the emotion was maintained throughout the poem. great work and keep writing :D
