Left Wondering

I feel my friendship has been discarded
Tossed aside
My words held no meaning
My words inadequate to the task
She left in the middle of the night
Took her few remaining words

An empty spot
A kind word not received
Encouragement lost
A smile I will not feel
So I must wonder
Were we friends
Was it a game of pretend
In the final analyse a dead end
I am still here
Maybe too far but still near
Willing to listen
I didn't go away
Don't true friends stay
The ones left behind pay

So I'm left with anger
Feeling hurt
So to cope
I'll stop looking here and there
I will try not to care

We invest a lot of our selves with the friends we make on the Soup
a second family of sorts. Becca was like a little sister and a bright spot
in my day. I will miss her, I see this morning her account is gone.

    I've just read this poem and was going to say, I don't believe we've been tossed away, sometimes circumstances beyond our vision dictate actions of others, Becca, if you read this, know we miss you.

    Me too Richard but she had her reasons...people like Becca don't hurt people on purpose..and there are hurtful people on soup too...some people don't have the emotional strenghth to take them for what they are!

    I know, this is just me processing my feelings. I would be at the front of the line celebrating if she returned.

    It's too bad. I don't understand when people just delete everything and go. This is a heartfelt poem. I hope she returns to see your poems, Richard. I sure would enjoy seeing her again.

    The only reason I check out the blogs is for the jokes people post and there are some good one's.Need a good laugh?check some out.T.G.I.F.vs S.H.I.T.I was only trying to help,and two priests are sure to bring a smile.

    Agreed, personally I have been treated well by all the people I have been in contact with, mind you I tend not to go on the blogs so I miss some of what goes on behind the scenes.

    These emotions run deep not unlike the ocean that is wicker basket of every accountable tear, Everything you write has it's mark on it, bless your beautiful heart, God ain't no fool, he hand weaved you with his bare hands, and his whole heart, love to you dear one, xxx Rose xxx

    Richard....I'm sorry you are hurting. Don't second guess yourself. Don't stop caring. She will be back in time because I KNOW she cared so much about many people here....I do believe you were top of the list! :) Your friendship will survive this....be patient.

    Not in my nature to stop caring. Thanks for your kindness.

    I understand this all too well. As the saying goes: "A reason, a season, or a lifetime". Perhaps, the mystery isn't as complex as it presents itself. I believe time will answer this. That said, I know how sad & frustrating this is...
