This is a poem about losing a best friend to shallow jealousy. Keep in mind all that is important to you. If you squeeze and hold on too tightly to your friends, eventually they will release their hold.

Losing A Piece Of My Soul
I came to you the hour I was in pain
Looking for answers, I cried to you in vain.

I shared the many skeletons hiding in my heart,
I knew then you'd be my friend,
I knew it from the start.

Troubles ran like rivers, flowing through my life,
You picked the pieces up and help me through my strife.

When home wasn't home to me no more,
You opened up your heart, and opened up the door.

We cried into night until the early morn.
We solaced each other's pain and shared our many thorns.

As time flew, the air grew thick,
I saw our friendship fading, and my heart grew sick.

The day had arrived,
When it was time to say goodbye.

Now I sit alone,
reminiscing the past I'd blown.

    This poem really touched me because I think a lot of people can relate to it. I am going through something similar so I could relate to losing a best friend. It's happened to me a few times before.

    i really like this poem because it relates to what had happened to me. I had a bestfriend and then one day she called me and she told me that she didn't wanted to be friends with me anymore. She said not even friends anymore. after the call all i did was cried because i didn't know what to do. All i knew was that things were going to be different.
