Perfected Friendship

by BeautifulxMess   Apr 26, 2007

It appears to feel like it was only yesterday we met.
First day of second grade breezed by like the wind.
We hardly knew who each other was, but talked a lot.
From that day on, you became my first best friend.

Elementary was a blur with all the fights that we had.
We made up eventually because it was said and done.
Sleep overs were the best of times we've experienced.
And every memory with you involved the word, fun.

We promised to be best friends no matter what.
Our dream was to become rich and famous singers.
We sang and danced like we were in a concert.
But the pain of the drifting away still lingers.

Middle school came and we fought more than ever.
Boys irritated our friendship that used to be strong.
I felt left out and abandon because I felt unwanted.
It seemed like everyone hated me and I was wrong.

We departed away for a while and came back soon.
Fights started back up again and never seem to bail.
My heart was shattered when you were hurt inside.
As for a friend, I thought I was the one who would fail.

We're now in high school and matured over the time.
All those fights are a part of our past and to be erased.
It doesn't matter how many times we fought and cried.
The pain, torture, and cries are sealed in a metal case.

Once a friend, always a friend, I believe that now.
You're the sister I never had and my best friend.
When everything feel out of place you were there.
When we promised, we meant it, best friend to the end.

    Another great piece of poetry. However, I understand the emphasis on the friendship, but I feel that you repeated the word 'friend' a few too many times, particularly in the last stanza. Still, another great write.

    Take Care - Sole.

    Wow. So easily related to. :D
    It wasn't my favorite poem, only because the rhyme scheme. I love poems with perfect rhyming, Lol. But, this poem was GREAT, and it had a lot of meaning to it. Which I absolutely loved. I remember all those things with my best friend, as well.
    Except the whole high school part, we never made up.. Well, until three days ago. Lol.

    You did a great job, hun.
    Keep it up.
