Why?

Broken connections,
haunt my dull mind.
Loss of affection,
trailing behind.

Where did my friends go?
Who are they now?
Warm hearts turned so cold,
eyes filled with clouds.

A broken friendship
strums at my mind.
A lonely steamship
without a bind.

Why did we meet?
Why did we break?
Were we incomplete?
Was it all fake?

Memories linger
throughout each day.
Pointing a finger,
empathy swayed.

It served a purpose
time just ran out,
scratching the surface
releases all doubts.

Greater learned lessons
cement while alone.
Inner progression
within my bright zone.

– Grace Y. Estevez- Reddy

  5. That was a great poem Grace and I ponder those questions too at times. life is so interesting like this. Connections of the heart are never lost but there is a distance in physicality which can be hard at times. xo πŸ’–

  6. Sometimes, people you thought would be your friend forever just…stops. And sometimes you never know the reason why. This has happened to me a couple of times, and it still bothers me.

    1. I can relate.It took me a while to learn to keep moving forward.Sometimes paths drift apart to later reunite and at times they drift apart to make room for the new.πŸ’•

  7. This happens to all of us at some point, doesn’t it? Your poem makes me sad thinking of some of my friends I was very close to once, but drifted apart with time for no reason. Beautifully written Grace.

  8. So many of these lines resonated with me. Thank you for writing such a beautiful piece, Grace. Stay blessed ❀️❀️❀️
