Short Poems

1. “Fading Away”
Our friendship once strong and bright,
Now slipping out of sight.
Words left unsaid, emotions untold,
Our bond now growing old.

2. “Silent Goodbye”
We used to laugh and talk for hours,
But now we sit in silence, like strangers.
We both know our friendship is over
But neither dares to utter the word.

3. “Missing You”
I think of you every day,
And wonder if you feel the same way.
Our friendship gone in the blink of an eye,
Leaving me to question why.

4. “Moving On”
I’ll cherish the memories we shared,
But it’s time for me to move on and be unpaired.
I’ll always remember the good times we had,
But it’s time for us to say goodbye and be glad.

Medium Poems

of poem 1: “Faded Memories

As I walked down the lane today,
I thought of you, my friend.

The memories we made, the laughs we shared,
Are now a thing of the past, it seems.

We used to be so close, inseparable and true,
But now, we’re mere strangers, nothing more than that.

Was it something that I said or did?
I pondered, as I walked in the light of day.

But I realized that sometimes, things just end,
And friendships can fade away.

The memories we made will always stay,
But it’s time to say goodbye, my friend.

It’s time to move on, and start anew,
And bid farewell to the love we once knew.

of poem 2: “Broken Bonds

We used to be like two peas in a pod,
Together, we laughed and shared every nod.

But now the bond we once shared,
Is broken, shattered beyond compare.

What was once joy and happiness,
Has now turned to bitterness and sadness.

Words we said that we can never take back,
Have left us with nothing but regret and a lack.

I wish we could go back to the way it was,
When our bond was strong, unbreakable under the sun.

But now it’s gone, vanished into thin air,
And all that’s left is a void of despair.

Maybe someday, we’ll find our way back,
Maybe someday, we’ll mend the bonds that we lack.

But for now, I bid you farewell,
And hope you find happiness beyond the dell.

Long Poems

The End of Our Journey

Our friendship was a journey, a path we took together
Filled with laughter and memories that we’ll always treasure
But as we reach this crossroads, it’s time for us to part
It’s painful and it’s hard, but we must follow our hearts

Somewhere along the way, we drifted apart
Our once strong bond, now fragile like glass art
We tried to fix what was broken, but it wasn’t enough
The more we tried, the more our friendship got tough

We can’t ignore the elephant in the room
The distance between us has turned into a gloom
Our differences and conflicts have taken over
And it’s clear that it’s time for us to start over

We’ve shared so much through the years
Laughter, tears, and even our fears
But even the best of friendships can come to an end
And we must accept that it’s time to mend

It’s hard to say goodbye to someone so dear
But perhaps it’s time for us to disappear
To find new paths and new beginnings
And let go of what was left with no winnings

So as we stand here at the end of our journey
Let’s cherish what we had with pure empathy
We’ll always look back at what we shared
And be grateful for the moments we paired.


Once there was a time
When laughter filled the air
Friendship was strong
And we didn’t have a care

But something changed along the way
A rift began to form
The closeness we once had
Became the calm before the storm

We tried to hold on tight
To salvage what we had
But every argument and fight
Only made us more sad

We lost touch little by little
As days turned to weeks
Our conversations grew shorter
And smiles more bleak

I miss the moments we shared
The memories we made
The inside jokes and late night talks
And the bond that we once had

Now there’s nothing left
But silence and a void
The emptiness of losing you
Has left me so destroyed

I wish we could go back
To how things used to be
Before the hurt and pain
Before the divide in between

But I know that it’s too late
And we’ve both moved on
The loss of our friendship
Will forever leave me drawn

So here’s a final goodbye
To what we used to be
I’ll hold onto the good times
And let go of the rest, you’ll see.
