Ghosted by a friend

by deeplydesturbed   Jun 30, 2017

Today I realised its happened.
You’ll never message me back
We live states apart
but you promised.
We held no secrets,
I miss our endless chats,
Our late night calls
and our daily texts.
Your number isn’t working?
You’ve blocked me
on all accounts.
I can’t email, insta or snap.
Is it because I stopped drinking
and started caring more?
Is it because you’re no longer alone
and your partner got jealous?
Or is it simply because you
have found someone else
to call your closest friend?
Whatever the reason,
I wish you no ill will.
I still wish you all the best.
Just know I will always be here
holding out hope,
Waiting for an answer as to why..
I will still message hoping one day
you will receive them and know
I still love you as a friend
and I didn’t easily let you go…

    The depth of despair caused by s loved one shutting the door is huge. Well captured in your poem. I wonder if when it happens to them further down the line will they have grown enough to consider the pain they caused others in the past. What goes around comes around as they say

    This really is sad to read, Naomi. Friends are fickle creatures aren't they? That is why I choose the life of a loner...except for my three children, wife, two dogs, cat, fish etc. Anyway, you get the point. It's lovely to have friends but, unfortunately, they often seem to cause more harm than good.

    All the best as ever,

    N this is extremely powerful and sad and all too relatable it's difficult but you are strong and I know it'll be hard because you are a very caring person... I truly hope this isn't about who I think it's about !!!
    Much love

    I agree with Mel! This write is extremely raw and well written- full of so much emotion...the confusion, the heartbreak, the hope... it is absolutely terrible when we lose a close friend. It's even more terrible when we don't know why. So much love and peace to you, hon! <3
