When my friend made promises that he couldn't and didn't keep, it hurt. It's close to impossible to describe the true pain of a broken bond, a piece that you want to heal and try to fix, but that's just too difficult to repair. I wrote a poem about it years ago, and now, fully recovered having finally made enough new friends and stronger bonds, I am able to face it and publish my feelings without embarrassment and tears. After almost 15 months of confusion, sobs, and crazy and dramatic middle schoolers, I have learned not only that life's most valuable lessons hurt pretty badly, but that friendship is a gift to never be doubted. Nature has its ways, and everything has a purpose and a destiny. Our paths will twist with others, but we need to be able to trust that we will get on without people at times. True friendship might get hidden, but will always be there, no matter how much life's pain seems to cancel it out. They'll never forget you, and will always eventually come back.


11. Part Eleven, my summary and final statement

I was shy, trembling
You were enrapturing
Perfect posture
Lovely smile
You were the music
You were my song
We were little
Look what happened
The flame died
The clouds closed over
But today, when I needed most
You were there
The optimistic
Inspiring ray
That dared to
Peep through the murk
You are the sunshine
And I, the unpredictable tides,
Will always look for you
Through every storm

Thank you for not
Moving onto a new friend
Thank you for realizing my situation
And reaching down,
For pulling me from the pit
Thank you for my happiness
And newly found optimism
For dusting off the old me
Instead of pushing her
Further back on the shelf

I'm sorry I was
Such a pompous fool
For hurting you
With my silly "silent treatment"
And most of all,
I'm sorry for all of the twists
Of our relationship
I now know that
Somehow, we will be
Destined to help each other
Countless times through trouble
After all, what else are friends for?
