    I love this poem!! It is obviously written with a lot of emotion, and you put so much into it.
    This is so relatable, I think all the readers would enjoy it. Very few people stay when you need them, which just shows you their true colors. Great job at expressing yourself here. I am sorru for your friend as well :( People can be so cruel. I can't wait to read more from you. Your poems mean so much to me always. 5/5 *hugs* <3 Katie

    A very touching piece.

    The internet can be a very dangerous thing, I feel for your friend. I had once been harrased by a person on another site. It had been taken care of, but it made me so angry. It's true, you really realize who your true friends are when it comes down to it.

    Wonderful write with real, pure emotion, 5/5.

    True friends will never trun their back on you no matter what the circumstances are. Those "friends" who shun you were merely acquaintences or just people passing through your life. My prayers are with Greg. Well done.

    Awww. That is so sad, but true. A lot of people you consider to be good friends with may see you as just someone to pass the time with.

    You wrote this beautifully and I love the raw emotion you put into it. The wording was beautiful. 5/5

    True friends are hard to find & I feel so sorry
    for your friend. He has to fight not only with
    his illness but with heartbreak as well..take care.

    Not sure if theres much I can add to whats been said already; yes this is very sad but it happens in the real world today. Some people who you think are your friends can backstab you at any time whether you see it coming or not. Its so sad that people have to be that way... I'm sorry to hear this, I wish your friend the best.

    Yes we can be unkind to each other for reasons that should not matter. You can't catch anything over the internet well may be dumbness.
    Thanks for the idea for a subject.

    Ingrid, you have penned here a reality based piece that shows the shallowness of the human mind.The ones he called friends were not friends at all.I can imagine the hurt this man endure after bringing many happiness and joy through his writing to so many only to have the ones he held dear turn away from him.
    I sure will pray for him and hope that this poem you write will bring him some comfort in knowing that there are still a few he can call a freind, you.
    Though sad it was beautifully penned.

    (Sob Sob)... I just want to thank you. I cannot write more than this. If you can read between the lines then you might get the reason.

    Thank you for this poem.

    Another star poem Ingrid, full of emotion, anger and despair. So sad to know the reason why you penned this poem.
    I am belatedly sorry to hear of your friends demise. He will find that his reward and his true friends will be found in Heaven.
    God bless him, and you Ingrid for writing such a great piece of work. I am sure that he was very proud of you. I would be..
