Broken Friendship stings...

Has this ever happened to you? A friend you hadn't spoken to in a while and you accidentally run into each other. You'll look at each other for a moment and then memories would flood you. Y0u would not know what to say, where to begin, you would talk and then move on with a promise to catch up soon.  Isn't it funny, two people who were once inseparable just can't find words to talk??

Friendship is one of the most beautiful two people share. And we make abundant of them in every phase of life. And in the time of facebook, we make friends in tonnes..! We met today and by the night you have been added to list. Today, we are friends with person we have never met, we talk with person whom we have never seen. We live in the times where a person may have 500 friends online but may commit suicide because of loneliness. Friendship is starting to lose its very foundation... 

But among all this, sometime, you come across people with whom you feel happy. And before you know, you become best of friends and can't think of your life without him or her. And quotes like this starts to make sense...

If you're alone, I'll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I'll be your shoulder. If you want a hug, I'll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I'll be your smile... But anytime you need a friend, I'll just be me.

But as with everything in life things get messed up. And the person who was so close to you suddenly could not be found anywhere near. The friendship you valued so much does not exist anymore. Often when you think about it, you wonder what went so wrong that two of you can no longer stand each other. How a friendship in which there was no space for sorry or thank you got so bitter? How all of it changed and you never realized ? The reasons could be many but whenever you look back and remember the times,

We always thought we'd look back on our tears and laugh, but we never thought we'd look back on our laughter and cry.

there would be a feeling of regret over those failed friendship. There would be pain of missing out a great friend. There would be heart-aches, an aching guilt that would plague you forever. And believe me, a lost friend, a broken friendship hurts like hell. Whatever you may do, whatever you may try, you would not be able to let go of it. You may forget about it in the daily errands of life but the guilt, the pain would always return. 

Broken friendship stings...
The agony of losing a friend
Eats you up from the inside
For not knowing what you did wrong
They do not care to respond back
Even after you have tried so many times
You have given up, but thinking hasn't
Where was it that you went wrong?

Not being able to find the answer
For the memory of that last conversation
Haunts you forever...
Heart broken and gloomy is how you feel.

So if you have a friend with whom you've fought for some reason or have simply lost touch due to your busy schedule, then it is time to give them a call or meet up. Life is too short to hold grudges and harbor bitterness. Cherish the people who have been with you and are always with you. Friends are always friends no matter what, every friendship goes through its good and bad phases, but remember the broken ones haunts you forever.

We all lose friends.. we lose them in death, to distance and over time. But even though they may be lost, hope is not. The key is to keep them in your heart, and when the time is right, you can pick up the friendship right where you left off. Even the lost find their way home when you leave the light on. ~ Amy Marie Walz
So, don't wait, don't let it happen to you. Pick the phone and call them, meet up and let them know they were always remembered because, 

the worst solitude is to be destitute of sincere friendship. ~ Sir Francis Bacon
