I called

I called to ask if you would come,

Told me you’d call me back,

Never did.

 

I waited,

I hoped,

I wanted to see you,

Because your my ‘best friend’.

 

I called and called,

No one picked up,

No call back,

You said I have your number is I NEED to talk to you,

But I don’t NEED to,

I want to,
you’re my ‘friend’.

 

And when I do call,

You don’t pick up,

But it’s fine,

I’ve gotten used to not seeing you,

Or talking to you.

 

But I understand,
You’re trying to find your self,
But you’re losing all your friends in the process,
The least you could have done was call.

 

We’re not really friends,

Not any more,

But that’s fine,

As long as your happy.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

((The least she could have done was to FUCKING CALL ME AND TELL ME SHE WASN’T FUCKING COMING. I would have told her that it was cool and fine maybe another time. Whatever it’s not like I’ve never been let down or disappointed before. I’m done, I’m tired I fucking give up because there’s no fucking point in waiting for her. she can’t fucking say I didn’t try.))

You did what I have done so

You did what I have done so many times.... I try so that I can be at peace knowing I put my best foot forward, and the rest is on the other person because I am one who warms up to people easily. I have always found people to replace those who cannot find time for my friendship I have to offer. I have done this so often that it has become second nature. Sometimes they will call me when they need me, and I will listen best I can. It has made me a more considerate person than I used to be, but it has also made me the type of person who will speak my mind and tell you exactly what I think about how you treat me, which can often cause people to shy away because no one likes to hear the truth about their flaws. I know I am not flawless, but the least I can do is live my life authentically and try my best to surround myself with those who do as well. Good luck and don't let people take your smile from you. It is yours. You deserve it. Learning to surround youself with those who are like minded takes time. Be patient with you. I liked your poem because it was honest. Ugly but honest, and that isn't an easy thing to write.


...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

Oh I wanted to say too, that

Oh I wanted to say too, that althou we are in this age of great technology, don't always trust it. Technology messes up and things sometimes do not work as they should. I have found many times people were angry with me saying I did not call when I did...but for some reason the call does not go through. Also texts get intercepted and all screwed upnas well.

Thank you

I found out a day after I'd posted this that her phone kept turning on and off on her, and that she was unable to call back. So it's understandable, however, this isn't the first time it's happend, nor to I think it will be the last.

 

On top of this, I bairly ever see or speek to her, the last time was sevral weeks ago, the time before that, months. How can a person be friends with someone they never talk to or see. I'm sure others can, hell, they can even be more then that, but I'm not that good with 'long distant' relationships.

A very emotional piece, I've

A very emotional piece, I've gathered. I see from your notes that her actions pain you. It is not my place to give advice, though I do hope you overcome your troubling feelings. Poetry is a great way to express your emotions. You did well.
