Poems about Leaving a Friendship

Friendship is one of the main things that makes life worthwhile. When you have a friend to confide in, suffering seems more bearable, and pleasures are more intense. Everything is better when you have a friend to share it with. When a friendship breaks, whether or not it is for the best, there is a degree of pain and mourning that an individual goes through. There were things that you may have done only with that person and you feel a void in your life. Take some time to let yourself mourn before moving on to other relationships.

66 Broken Friendship Poems on Loss, Betrayal, and Fighting

  1. 1. Walk Away

    This was written for two of my best friends.

    I watch you walk away from me,
    And the tears start to fall.
    I ask myself a million times,
    How did we lose it all?

  3. 2. A Friendship Lost

    • By Brenda J. Metz
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2007

    We don't always know the reason why friendships are severed, but one thing is for sure, it leaves a void in those who were part of it.

    I remember the time not long ago
    When we laughed and shared it all.
    We were the very best of friends,
    Or at least that's what I thought.

    I lost my best friend. She helped me through the worst of times like when I was picked on and when I was having guy troubles. She was the one person I looked up to for advice. And she betrayed me. Now I have no one...

  6. 4. Forgiveness

    • By Roberto Rigby
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2016

    I had a friend who was truly caring. Over time she became like family to me. However, recent drama has caused us to stop being friends, and it hurts deeply. I wish I could send this to her, but she wants nothing to do with me anymore.

    What can I say about what I've done?
    I miss the laughs we shared, how we had fun.
    Now we don't talk; we're complete strangers.
    How did our problems become this major?

    I wrote this for a friend who hasn't been much of a friend.

    Today will be my last and today will be my first.
    The last time I get walked on by you,
    The first time I've moved so far from you.

  8. 6. Just Like

    This poem is all about using similes. The poet compares her situation to various objects. Our experiences in life can be compared to objects. For example, if someone is bright and cheery, we might compare her to a ray of sunshine. If someone is mean, we might compare those words to the hiss of a snake.

    Just like a glass
    my heart is broken
    Just like a star
    you light up my life

    This is about how people change so quickly, how you trust them but they leave you shattered. This poem is about how your most trusted friend can leave you shattered in pieces and scattered in all emotions.

    Like a gentle wave, you swayed against my ship.
    With a gentle breeze, you guided me forward.

    My two best friends decided to end our friendship at the same time. I'd never been so hurt in my life.

    I knew it was a line, but I still gave both of you my heart.

    Said you would stay, promised you could.

    They were friends forever, seemed to be joined at the hip, but suddenly it seemed that they weren't on the same page anymore. The connection was no longer there.

  16. 14. Words

    I wrote this poem in the early morning hours after replaying the thoughtless remarks that a friend made earlier in the day. It seemed better to get my thoughts onto paper than to have them run around in my head.

    "Give everyone the benefit of the doubt."
    That's what I always teach.
    But even my own words of wisdom
    are now somewhat out of reach.

    Think you're so perfect in everything.
    You think you can control my mood.

    • By Jessica A. Phillipi
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2007

    When the person that you've known has betrayed herself, the time may come to make a painful decision. It may mean the end of your friendship.

    You can stand there and smile; you can sit there and laugh,
    but you can't trick me; I know it's a mask.
    You're trying to lie to me and everyone else,
    but why is it that you're lying to yourself?

    I wrote this poem when I thought I had lost my best friend to people who didn't deserve an awesome person like her and turned her to their side. I was momentarily confused at that time and still don't know what an actual friend is. I guess I won't until I find one. I hope someone else can relate to what I am talking about.

    What are best friends?
    Are they always there for you?
    Do they keep secrets?
    Do they hide from you?

    This poem expresses what happens when a guy and girl friendship has to come to an end and proves that old saying "guys and girls can't be just friends."

    Who would have thought we'd be best friends?
    Who would have known on you I could depend?
    Who could have seen it would end so fast?
    Now our strong bond remains in the past.
