Alone

You used to come and visit
You don't come by anymore
I waited many hours
Hoping you'd walk through the door

I miss our conversations
You're the one who knew me best
I shared all my happy thoughts
And my shortfalls I confessed

I know I'm far from perfect
Have I scared my friend away
Without you here beside me
I feel so lost everyday

I got tired of waiting
So I called you on the phone
You feared I was mad at you
As you sat home all alone

    Hi Richard, once again, another fine write from your pen. In my life I have been the one to make the call or go to the door, anything to save a friendship that Is Important.I wonder why things always reach this state. Sometimes human nature can be really strange. We want the friendship but we don't want to make the first step when things take strange turns. Good for you Richard, taking the step. It is hard when you don't know the reception you might get. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Being with someone and feeling alone is worse.

    Aww, so similar to something I've gone through too. Misunderstandings can ruin a friendship if you don't straighten them out. Well done!

    I'm so so glad you picked up that phone and made sure things were ok! It takes a strong man to be able to make that move. Great write!

    It should never have to come to that. More time is used in life wondering than knowing. When it comes to school, that's fine cause you're learning. When it comes to friendships/relationships, that's a waste. This was a good piece, sir!

    Thanks Drake. I see this happen to people and I wonder why. Both sides feel hurt and pride prevents them from making a move towards the other. In the end both are sad.
