Shared with OctPoWriMo Day 7, d’Verse Poetics and UBC Day 7.


thought you’d be there,
always around you were;
to hear my sadness then,
to give power to my pen.

in the busyness of work,
our friendship I shirked;
and when I turned today,
I knew I had lost my way.

for you were not there,
and no one else cared.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. It’s always sad when a friendship drifts away. I had a pen friend in England for many years. Suddenly the emails stopped coming. I sent her an e-card, which she picked up but never responded to. The last time I tried to contact her personal email address, the email bounced back. At any rate, it’s depressing when this happens to a friendship. 🙁

    • Yes, I agree with you. Emphasis is needed on some things, to make it read/heard properly. Thanks for the lovely comment, Katie Mia Frederick.

      PS: Yes, I think the spam control got annoyed with all caps O:-) it had sent your comment to spam.

  3. It happens to all of us at one time or another but that is no consolation; putting it on paper in such a way as to pay tribute to it’s passing is one constructive way to deal with it…although it doesn’t take the pain away.
