If you chase two rabbits, you will lose them both.

So many laughs;

So many good times;

I thought you were my better half;

We shared so many tears;

You were my sister for years;

We used to be partners in crime.

But then you decided you didn’t want me;

You cut me out of your life;

You left me wonder who I would be;

Without you by my side.

I thought we were part of a tradition;

I thought we’d give life quite a run;

Our mothers were friends before us;

I thought our daughters would follow in the fun.

Then you stopped talking to me;

And my letters went unanswered;

Thinking of you is pure agony;

These tears I cry, you conjured.

You never answered your door;

You left me waiting for more;

You left me when I needed you most;

Was I really that much of a bore?

The last time I saw you was by pure chance;

And you gave me one little glance;

Before you slammed the door in my face;

Were those dozen years all just a waste?

Were all those shed tears just out of place?

Thank you so much, Star! I'd seen this coming for awhile, but it didn't make it any easier, even though I'm used to losing friends......I've found a friend who is better to me than her anyway, so maybe things worked out for the best. Thanks again, Star, I really appreciate your comment!

Yikes.. this sounds like you just lost a great friend..
Coming from a place similar to that, I can say it can get better in time, and all though there will never be another friend like her, I hope you find another friend who can come close.

You are an amazing writer! keep it up!!
