Written for a former friend that i may never see or talk to again

Once we were the greatest of friends 
We enjoyed each other’s company 
We could talk to each other for hours
We talked about anything and everything
Nothing was off limits or sacred between us
I used to love to make you laugh and smile
I never thought you did enough of either
You once said that we had a special connection
I thought nothing could ever come between us
I thought you would always be a part of my life
I thought we would be friends until the end
I cared for you to the very depths of my soul
I came to love you for unique reasons
Your difficult life made me crazy with worry
Your silence only served to make that worse
I would wonder if you were hurt or dead 
I foolishly tried to be your everything 
knowing full well that was impossible
but that did not keep me from trying
because you were always worth it to me

Once we were the greatest of friends
You once said you had a big heart
but there was no room in it for me  
You must hate me to your very core
You knew nothing would hurt me more
than to leave me writhing in confusion  
behind your unrelenting wall of silence
forever to wonder if you are dead or alive
silently praying that your life got less scary
because I will never stop caring about you
I refuse to give up on you like others have
You and others may think me a fool
but realize that I do not have it in me
to do to you what you are doing to me
I truly hope you are in a better place now
and nothing but good ever comes to you
I hope you find everything you seek in life


Maybe someday before I take my final journey
you will realize the kind of friend you had in me
Hopefully someday you will find a way to forgive me
for being crazy enough about you to foolishly believe
that I could fill all the voids and vacuums in your life
that others deliberately caused or callously left behind
Perhaps someday you will finally come to understand 
that I did this because I believed you were far better
than the sum of all your mistakes and bad judgments.
When I looked at you I never saw just another woman
who had simply been ravaged by life and left broken
I saw what I believed was a “Masterpiece Undefined”
Alas maybe I am nothing more than a crazy blind dreamer
stumbling through life seeing only the very best in people
daring to believe that I can make them see what I see.

Hi Kim, You've penned such a heartfelt write. I would be so devastated to lose a friendship like you described. To a find a friendship like this very rare in one's lifetime. A "Masterpiece Undefined was a great line. It would make feel good if someone thought of me like that.Well done . A without a doubt seven:-) Alexis

I wrote a poem called "Masterpiece Undefined" that was inspired directly by this woman and it is up on soup as well. I cared for her deeply and even loved her a bit because she wound up being like a muse to me in a sense by inspiring some of my most recent writes. However, unlike the other pieces she was the total inspiration for "Masterpiece Undefined." I thank you for your comments.
