My Friends Have Become Strangers. A Sonnet

Grey Mists

Source

It is sad how friends can become strangers.

One misplaced word, and the Sun is

Engulfed by grey mists;

The Light by shadows.

From the dawn of millennia,

Misunderstandings, innuendos and fear,

Have caused diamond hearts to become foggy;

Brilliant minds to be enveloped in darkness.

The extinction of sweetness, now percolates

A once joyful spirit. What to do?

The radiance of the moon beckons;

The Divine Mother weeps.

She has lost a heart, wounded,

And the pain bleeds…

Manatita, I've lost a friend through misunderstanding or misinterpretation. It's sad when one party isn't willing to work it out.

Very sad, Shauna,

And I'm sure you know that's not good for the Soul. We are all His children. Try to send out what the Buddhists call Mehta (loving kindness). That's the best that you can do. Appreciations for your kind offering.

I do, Manatita. I will continue to love and support. The rest is up to the other party involved.

True. Poets and writers are incredibly sensitive people, 'moi' included. You have my empathy. I send you my love. Let us keep our heads up. Thanks once again. In Love and Light.

This happens, my friend, even with the best intentions and deep and sincere affection, some friends can't peek into our heart and unexpectedly desert us. Amazing and sad but true ! May be destiny's way of teaching and refining through such ordeals ! A great work indeed !

Yes, Bill.

I thought that you would understand, this kind of poem. We share some similiarities. Looking forward to your Hub. Peace, Bro.

Namaste! Harishprasad,

You're so kind. Perhaps when I should have written this I didn't. Now it's just a pleasant retrospection. Hari Om!

I think everyone lost friends due to misunderstandings, Manatita. Some friends return and some are gone forever, because our 'soul frequencies' don't match anymore. Love and Peace.

Yes, Bro.

True in many cases, but not always with real friends. Perhaps we hurt them, knowingly, unknowingly or by error. Again, it is also true that 'soul frequencies' as you call it, does not match in others. That I know.

Useful contribution, Bro.

This is a very sad thing. But after time passes I try to center on what that friend offered me and how my life was enriched by them. Side note, I may be slow to respond but always available. Jamie

Losing a friend is devastating. I know 'cos I've been there. The memory of the event remains fresh. Beautiful...

Chuckle, chuckle, Brother Jamie.

Didn't you know that I could write depressive ones? only perhaps despair is a better word. Apparently they help also. Do not worry Bro, you're dear to me. I am 'cool' Bro. Thanks for your support, as always.

Hi Ruby.

Yes, I suspect most of us have lost one or two. Much love.

I can certainly relate. What to do?

What you're doing, my Sweet. Continue ... you're not in the stranger status. Keep that inner fire burning for Him and the Light will continue to glow. In Love and Light.

It is a painful thing to have to endure for sure. When this happens it is sometimes difficult to trust again, especially if betrayal has occurred.

Peace and love

I have friends who have "disappeared" from my life and I have never been able to figure out why. It is an awful feeling and leaves us with a hole....prayer and understanding are the only things we can do to help ourselves live with the loss.

Voted up, awesome, and beautiful.

Yes. I have lost a friend through misunderstanding. And, as I humbly attempted to reach out, the ex-friend decided that the friendship was not valuable enough to retain.

So sorry, Marlene.

Never mind, I'm sure you will or have survived and moved on.
