Broken Friendship Poem

This poem describes the aching feeling of feeling broken after having felt whole.

A Broken Puzzle

© Jessica M. Ward
When I found you
I found me
I was no longer alone
I was put together
There were no missing pieces
We were the perfect puzzle
On lookers envied what we had
We had so many beautiful memories
That they're not even possible to forget
That part of my life was my life
The life I loved

Then I lost you somewhere
Along the way
There were no fights or disagreements
Our puzzle just broke
Piece by piece it fell apart
Soon it disappeared
I've tried to get it back
I've done everything
The pieces of the puzzle
Just don't fit together anymore
I found your pieces reconnecting
With new pieces
My pieces were left torn and shattered
Alone in their box

I just want one last look
at that beautiful puzzle we shared
Even though it won't help me get over the pain
The pain that has ruled my life for months
I just can't close the cover to that puzzle box

  • Hi Jess.
    Thank you for the poem you wrote, it really touched me. I feel the same pain you went thru after I lost my friendship with my best friend from long time recently. I am still trying to be strong. but you made me believe that I am not the only one, who is going thru this rough path. thank you again. Kenneth

  • I spent 13 years of my life with a woman and this poem describes the breakdown of our relationship quite well.
    I'm still not over her.
    I'd give anything to get back what we once had.
    It's been about six since months now since I've seen her.
    Apparently she has been seeing someone else for a few months now.
    I hope their pieces fit.
    I won't let anyone get a hold of my pieces just yet.
    I've had a couple women try, but they just don't fit right.
    My pieces lay on the table, waiting for her to put me back together.

  • This touched me a lot me and my best friend were unbreakable, at least that's what I thought, but know I feel alone and I don't think anyone can replace her. She was the only friend I could trust and I don't know what happened she says it wasn't my fault but won't tell me why she is doing this.

  • I felt whole when I was with my best friend. She always knew how to make me smile, my life felt so complete, I used to think that she would always be in my life! I don't even understand how our friendship ended, now we're like strangers, its like we never had a beautiful friendship. all I have now is memories! I would give anything to have her back in my life! I will never forget her, even if she forgets me! its so painful! There's never a day that goes by that me crying!

  • This poem really touched me.
    I had a best friend for about 5 years...
    We grew up and became opposites.
    She was like, my world and life savor.
    We always said Best Friends Forever.
    I guess it wasn't true :(

  • I recently went through this ordeal with my two friends Jess and V. It sucks that this sort of thing happens. They went to a movie and connected and kind of have forgotten about me. They do EVERYTHING together now and I'm sitting in the back seat like the third wheel. I got fed up with it today and send them each this poem and if things don't change, I will be that loner, sadly.

  • A heart touching poem which makes me to remember my best friend named VINI .We both are very close to each other like two sisters, we share everything. But nowadays nothing is good in our life, we are not spending much time as earlier. We are not sharing our happiness or sadness I don't know why, but today also I love her so much I need her.
