We Were Always Meant To Be

We believed we were always meant to be,
But we're already falling apart, don't you see?
How could things have gone so wrong?
What if our time has come and gone?

We believed we were always meant to be,
Yet you left me to be so lonely.
All those broken promises and untold secrets
Still break my heart into a million pieces.

We believed we were always meant to be,
But now I've lost hope in you and me.
This silence between us is tearing me apart.
Will you ever come back for my broken heart?

I had two amazing best friends. But somehow I always got this feeling that I was the third wheel. That it would no longer matter if I wasn't there. Three months ago, that was proven correct. They loved talking about all the things that made me uncomfortable and ruined a lot of other things in life. I told them one day that I was no longer going to take part in those conversations and they should also stop. Soon, we had nothing left to talk about. We drifted apart. The two on one side, me on the other. I tried so hard to go back again and again and find a way to make our friendship work. It just wouldn't. They never have made the effort to include me anymore. In fact, they don't even talk to me. It's like all those times we hung out, I was forcing myself on them. Now I see them together and happy, laughing and smiling, whispering and doing all the things I once did with them... I'm happy for them, but it really hurts to know my true place in their lives... a place where I am not there.

We were best friends for five years. When we completed our 10th grade, she went to another school. She told me that no matter what, we will be in contact. I texted her several times to which she used to reply after 5 days and only used a single emoji. She didn’t pick up my calls. She didn’t text me. I cried and I gave up eating and doing anything. I did this for one month. I was more like a patient who was not willing to recover. One day I texted her, asking if she was into the friendship or not. I wrote 300-350 words, to which she replied, “No. Goodbye. Have a happy life.” I was shattered. I was behaving abnormally because I was unable to believe that she was the one who promised me that no matter what we would be with each other forever. She ended it as if we were never together.

We were best friends for 18 years. I love and cherish her. I misunderstood her not telling me that she had a boyfriend by refusing her phone calls. Why did I act so selfishly? I was scared I would lose her when she had a boyfriend. Further, I messed up again by using her info to create a Facebook page under her name of which I post a birthday poem for he. She was so angry and mad, she scolded me over her FB page and ended our relationship.

I tried so hard for years to regain our relationship, but I knew I couldn’t do it by myself. I lost hope and finally learned how to let her go. I forgive her with all her words that hurt me so much. I regretted my unintentional actions. I was so disappointed that she didn’t understand me all these years. I do miss her a lot. I just need to talk to her, but I don't think she even wants to. She blocked all the ways that I can reach her.

We were best friends for five years. Then she left. She left me for exciting new relationships and friendships. I tried to hold our friendship together, but I learned you cannot do it by yourself. I finally let go, and I was so numb at that point I did not feel the shattering pain until months later. It came in stages. Doubting, realization, then the pain. After I gave up hope, she told me that she had no doubt in her mind that we would fix it. I got hopeful, but actions speak louder than words. We barely talk and it is in passing. I forgive her. I just miss her. I was not enough for her and I don't know why.

I felt so lonely afterward. I had spent so much of my energy on her that I failed to grow any friendships with other people. I have gotten a few other friends now. I am healing. I just need to talk to her, but I don't think she even wants to.
