~Friends As A Puzzle~

Friends torn as a puzzle
Needing to be put together
But the thing I fear
Is they'll be apart forever
It was a friendship
Never to be lost
And now I want it back
No matter what the cost
Forgotten fantasies
Forgotten dreams
As I learned from you
Nothing is as it seems
I fell in love
But spoke to soon
As I found out
Under a dark moon
The lightning crashed
And the thunder went boom
For in your heart
There was no room
For more than just friends
So that is what we'll be
It took me awhile
But that I now see

Author's Notes:

I wrote this along time ago.
Before I even met Fletch.
It was for an old friend of mine.

Friends are wondeful people especially the ones that will remain our friends. I have a very best friend named Carolyn much like your Fletch I think only we have been married almost 35 years now. Your poem brought back memories of some people that were friends way back when I was just a little thing in grade school that I know would still be a friend if I should run across them. In a small place like we lived in not many people hang around after high school. Great poems bring back memories from the past and just look how yours got me thinking about the past. I loved it.

Yup, friendships sure are like puzzles! Some are harder to connect and keep together than others. Some are easy ans some are very, very hard... I like this a lot Tracy....good job!!

before I got down to the "about this poem" I kept going back and re-reading this I thought I was not understanding lol I finally read the "ab out" and understood it was BEFORE Fletch.
Nice Job

This is so sad, Tracy. There is nothing worse than being 'friended' when you want it to be more... Course you have Fletch now, so it had a happy ending! Jude

This is great, Tracy...You caught my attention and made me think about friends that i've not thought about in years...Friends that have long gone on with their own lives...I never realized I missed them so much until reading this...
Hugs to a NEW friend/sister...
Love you girl!

Tracy~ I liked the style of 'friends as a puzzle', as they really can be~! Sad when great dreams are dashed away~ Very nicely done~
Margaret...the old bag lady, wonderin' 'bout friends that have faded away
