Love and Relationships: The Brainwash

I wrote this poem based on a song I wrote a long time ago. The song was about a male friend I had who was one of my best and closest friends. We were always there for each other and told each other everything. But, one day, over night it seemed, he began to distance himself from me

while trying to fit into the structured role of a "guy" our environment at the time. He became someone I didn't know and I didn't know how to deal with it. So I wrote a song called " Falling Apart" in order to express my feelings. I recently tapped into those feelings again when a new friend of mine asked me to sing the song for her, and was once again moved to write.

Here is the poem. Enjoy, but more importantly, feel.

The Brainwash

They came
They took you away from me.
A group called Society.
Made you into something I could never have foreseen.
And in one stealthy and lethal swipe
Brainwashed you and completely destroyed my dreams, our dreams.

They stole.
Everything that could have been,
Had Fate not signed that shady deed,
leaving us to Chance and Uncertainty
and all alone to fend for ourselves
in that dark and dreary world, a world of mystery.

You promised we'd stick together
and that nothing could break our bond.
But then Society came around
and they took you away from me.
They made you believe that what we had was wrong.
That the differences between you and me should somehow have made us see.
And that we should have known deep down all along,
that it just wasn't meant to be.
So you left.
And I wept.
But don't worry.
I can look back now and feel no tears down my cheeks.
I can finally find the words that I thought would never come to me.
I've made peace with what you did to me.
I sincerely hope that
you are truly happy.

Love you all and Stay inspired,

P.S. So let me know what you think. Has a similar situation in which a close friend seems to completely change over night, leaving you wondering what went wrong? What did you do in the situation? And what do you think of the poem. Feel free to let me know in the comments below.

Something similar happened to me recently, with a new friend. It still hurts though.

Luinae said...

That EXACT thing happened to me. I had a super close guy friend and we really cared about each other- then I liked him and he grew apart and everything changed.

It's great that you were able to share this, I always get so nervous about my own creative writing! Guy/girl relationships always have their issues, I lost a close friend in a similar way, but you sometimes have to accept that people take their own path and even if perhaps you can't understand it, it's right for them.

Glad you liked the present box! Would be great if you could share a few pics on here so that I can clear up the mystery for those that didn't win by linking to you? Thanks!

-Zmaga: That seems to be happenening to me with a new male friend too. It always hurts when you lose a friend, no matter how long you've been friends.
-Luinae: That happens dear, and is unfortunately one of the risks of having a very close friend of the opposite sex.
-Megan: You are so right, everyone has their own path and sometimes two close people may not share the same path. And I will definitely post the pics in my next seeking inspiration post.
