    9 years of friendship
    9 years of being the best of friends
    9 years of always loving you
    9 years of a love that wouldn't end

    We always knew we're end up together
    Our family knew it too
    So in June when we made it official
    It was nothing new
    It was a start of a new chapter
    Something that we both needed in our lives
    A fresh start with a close friend
    It worked out just fine with no surprise
    You bought me a diamond ring
    Not engagement, it was just because
    I never took it off my finger
    Becuase thats not what a "wifey" does
    But on July eleventh, our 9 year friendship
    Quickly went down the drain
    Becuase you caught yourself up
    And caused me mistrust and pain
    I couldn't believe you would be so stupid
    You acted just like a low class *****
    Over a female that you barely knew
    But had a nice figure
    You say you didn't do anything
    But I am not naive
    You should know me better than that
    That story's hard to believe
    You ended our relationship
    For another reason too
    That you were still in love
    with someone that might not love you
    Oh, I won't throw away the ring,
    But I took it off and put it away
    The question now that lies is:
    What remains for us today?
    I can't forget about you
    Because you are a part of my life
    I am...well, was your best friend
    your confidante, and even your "wife"

    9 years hangs in the balance
    9 years of so much love and hate
    9 years that is on the line
    9 years that will be left up to fate

    Aw, honey. I know the feeling of deep disappointment in others all too well. Stay strong, and stay true to yourself. Don't let others bring you down. Much love, baby girl.

    9 year into one
    9 years as one
    to give away
    for such childish play
    lies run cross da face
    pain drip deep inside
    but love still reside
    the heart is broken
    as one look for whats
    smokin
    the joke is no laughter
    coz 9 years lay in pasture
    what yet remain is not the
    same but what a shame

    I hope u two come to peace within
    and mend what was broken coz
    true love is a gift a promise & token
    good luck and keep faith u will mend
    become sweet friendz again !

    Sweetheart:

    this moved me to my core...
    i hope you put this on a nice font
    some special paper
    laminate it
    and give it to his @ss

    so he'll know what a wonderful spirit he's foolin' with.

    loved this poem :heart:

    So many ears, and I know you are saying, and for what? Even disappointments are supposed to teach us something, although the reasons behind them are not always clear. I feel your pain in this emotive verse.
