[marissa] i remember the night we talked for eight hours and fell asleep still holding the receiver, not daring to sever these wire communications; separated by twelve minutes of highway. and i remember all the times i gave in to him, and let it spill when no one else would do. and the nights we'd laugh for hours without stopping to breathe too long. the pureness of our voices.

and i miss my best friend.

camille There were two friends who had been parted by war so that they lived in different kingdoms. Once one of them came to visit his friend, and because he was imprisoned and sentenced to be executed as a spy.

No amount of pleas would save him, so he begged the king for one kindness. "Your Majesty," he said, "let me have just one month to return to my land and put my affairs in order so my family will be cared for after my death. At the end of the month I will return to pay the penalty."

"How can I believe you will return?" answered the king. "What security can you offer?" "My friend will be my security," said the man. "He will pay for my life with his if I do not return."

The king called in the man's friend, and to his amazement, the friend agreed to the conditions. On the last day of the month, the sun was setting, and the man had not yet returned. The king ordered his friend killed in his stead. As the sword was about to descend, the man returned and quickly placed the sword on his own neck. But his friend stopped him.

"Let me die for you," he pleaded. The king was deeply moved. He ordered the sword taken away and pardoned them both.

"Since there is such great love and friendship between the two of you," he said, "I entreat you to let me join you as a third." And from that day on they became the king's companions. And it was in this spirit that our sages of blessed memory said, "Get yourself a companion."

mungo i got into an arguement with two of my friends last night. both of them disagreed with what i said, and that's fine. what isn't fine is that one of my friends does not respect me for having an opinion that is against his. he said i don't respect him because of where i stand on some issues, but he doesn't understand me and now i know he never has respected me. 000619

Dr Von It used to be so vital
To have a hundred of them
I knew their names
I knew their faces
I didn't know them
They didn't know me

I no longer want to be
The centre of popularity
The person with an acquaintance
For every occasion
A new conversation
For every celebration

The friends I have
Are people I can trust
To tell me when I'm a fool
To tell me when I'm wrong
To comfort me
Even without words

Silence is the mark
Of the truest friends
Words are easy
But the truest friend
Can share your silence
And share your thoughts

You have offered me advice
And I've ignored it
Though you have the insight
Into me that I lack
I have offered my help back
And known it would be ignored

But you have kept me sane
Through many a late night talk
Sharing wine and sharing life
Crying over memories
Laughing over tears
Wondering over life

And I know that I depend
Too much on you all in life
You are the objectivity
Which I lack
The wise words and wise thoughts
That I can only give

A cycle of admission
Confession and
Cries for help
I answer your calls
And you answer mine
I am never alone

oblivion i have friends but none of them are as close a part of me wishes they were and the rest of me wills it so that they are not very close at all. people betray people. i have experienced this. it hurt really bad. i figure it hurt so much because i loved the people that betrayed me and that love and trust made it hurt. if i didnt care about those people it wouldnt hurt as much if at all. "friends" right. i think it is smartest to have aquaintences and allies. you can still hang out and do things like friends to but they dont know about your hopes and fears and secrets. betrayal will happen to everyone but how you prepare for it is up to you. im not letting it happen to me again. 000810

Christy I had never gone out with someone who knew so much about me. You had seen me tear-stained and wind-blown, heartbroken and stressed out. I had confessed my continuing adoration of your roommate. You listened when I spoke, praised my creativity, and held me while I cried. It should have been obvious and simple, but it wasn't. I fell on my face a couple more times before finally seeing it was you who offered me help to my feet. 001011

Rhin ...know the real you, and love you for it.

my best friend of 16 years, is an honorary member of my family, and i hers. we know each other so well, that we finish each others sentences. we had never really thought about how long we had been friends, until recently, and we were amazed. we both still have so much to say to each other. what is even more amazing, is that within the span of 16 years, we have had only one argument. of course, we have differences of opinion & light-hearted disagreements, which is healthy, or else i would have to call her my clone. this sister of mine, knows me better than anyone. at times our relationship has been threatened by outsiders. mostly men, who fear the closeness we have, but we give each other space, and always come back stronger.

hey sis, you've cried with me, kicked back with me, and laughed with me, still, you keep on loving me. i love you, even if i don't say it all the time. we're going to grow old together, us as two old biddies, walking all over the city hand-in-hand, smacking our gums together, and reminding the other to pick up the pace...growing old doesn't seem so unwelcome, does it? well hell, i love ya'!

chanaka are few and far between...my friends must be time tested, which makes the all the more dear. and the time has not come yet, apparently. soon i hope. online isn't the same. it may be better. but still, i have a phone, and so do my friends. connections. 001115
...
Rhin when i lost him......you were the first person i called. you knew. i didn't have to tell you. you knew it before the phone rang. all you asked was, 'where are you?' remember as teenagers...i would have these terrible dreams about something horrible happening to you, the same time that you would, about me. i would dash down the stairs, grab the phone to call you, and you would already be on the line, calling me... it was the same as that day. i remember how we just sat in your car, staring at my empty house. i was afraid to go in, and you didn't make me. i was so crazy. i rumaged for my camera, and took a million photographs. i wanted to remember how everything looked, the last time he was here. i was in shock that day. i slept so much, and the only thing i remember, when i would stir awake, for those few brief moments, was seeing your face. even though there were other friends stopping in, you were the only one i remember. you left your family to stay with me, and i will never forget that. i know you thought i had lost it, when i started ironing his socks, and his silk boxers, but still, you stuck it out. it was right that you were there at the end, because you were the one who brought us together. you have always been there for me. it's the way it has always been with us. it's the way it will always be. i love you so much, my best friend, ladyg! 001117
...
ladyg Rhin, Rhin, Rhin, where do i begin, cause i know you keep looking back here to see if i have personally handed you the best friend award. I've got to think about it for a few. Yes, it was you that i got drunker than hell, for the first time, on our 17 th birthday, telling each other to shut the fuck up so my dad wouldn't wake up, and i made you eat all those pretzels so you would be quiet, yes, it was you, that I got stoned with, for the first time, and I don't remember, to this day, who's house that was, but I do remember you making me eat toothpaste to get the odor off of my breath, which landed on the side of your car when i spit it out the window. Yes, it was you, that skipped almost all of our senior year, 2nd semister, just so we could do what? I don't even remember what we did. And It was also you, that I walked down the aile with to get that diploma, laughing all the way, wondering how we made it, (think the english teacher had a crush on us) Yes, it was you that I chose over that red headed boy on the bus, dammit, he had a motercycle too. But then again, it was you, who's shoulder I cried on when i caught that son of a bitch with another girl, and it was you, I was with when that son of a bitch'es girlfriend chases us 20 miles with her head out of the window like a dog. It was you that got me to smoking cigarettes, cause everyone thought we were funny-acting high. It was you, that i always counted on, no matter what, like when i was real sick after I had the baby, when that dumbass doctor almost killed me, I called you, not able to get off of the couch, and you came. I feel asleep, and you cleaned my lil o' trailor, and watched the baby for hours. I still remember seeing you sitting there when i woke up, which was like what, 6 hours later. So No dear, you do not deserve the best friend award, You deserve the best person award, youre more than a friend, your my sis, sidekick, buttbuddie (per my husband) and my best friend, and that is the award you deserve.
love ya bunches sis

devotchka i think that last night i experienced a prime example of friendship. one of my friends procrastinated a really big project she had to do for today. i was about to go to bed (at 11PM--that's early) and i decided to go talk to her first. well, i said i would help her a little bit with her project. we weren't really paying that much attention to time. before i knew it, i had stayed up until 4:30 in the morning, helping her. i loved it, because the project was fun and it's the type of thing that allowed us to work and talk all at the same time. 010425

Fire&Roses I had a best friend for the longest time. He rescued me when i was the only girl. He always saved me when i was wounded playing army. When our imaginary planes crashed he let me have a hover board.

But then we grew up... to old to play army, to old to fly our imaginary planes, but when I see him I know he still remembers when we were best friends.

Then I met you. Another guy, funny smart and creative like he was. We talked and laughed We danced and we played hockey for four hours never going to see the movie.

You are more than my best friend.

Sterling625 When I read these statements I started to cry. I can't help it at all. I have my friends and without them I would not survive. This is something that I know very well. To my friend- Jess: I know that I just met you, but you are a caring, wonderful, and loving person who I know will be there to catch me when I fall, emotionally or drunk. hehehe. You truley are a great part of my life and I hope you know how much I love you. I'm always here for you. My friend, Mary, back in my home town was my sister, my support, and my family. When I had no one, she was there. When I had nothing, she gave to me. When I cried, she was the shoulder I leaned on. Mary is my best friend, my "sis", my support, and my strength. I hope she knows how much I will always love her. There is one otherb person in my life that I would like to talk about- my friend Adam. Adam was my best guy friend ever. When he got kicked out of his house, for doing nothing, I was the one on the other end of the line refusing to hang up. When my world fell apart he would help in any way he could. When I call at 3 am he only listens to what I need. He never yells. He is and always has been there for me. I love him and I always will. Guys- I don't know what I would do without you. You truley are the best. I couldn't ask for more. I love you all!!!!! 011008

optic discretion Friends keep you together, and remind you of the little abnormalities you have that make you unique. They cheer you up on a dreary day and offer a shoulder to cry on in times of need. They're always there for you, for better or for worse.

They laught with you, and sit eating ice cream with you on a cold day at Ben and Jerry's. They talk with you about life, and about anything.

Though you may fight, they will always be there in the end. There's nothing quite like friendship.

What a dreary gloomy world this would be without friends!

kill rhythm I need an outlet,
There's no way to go.
There’s no one to talk to, no one I know.
The people here are all the same.
Shallow, lifeless, looking for fame.
They cannot be trusted,
Hungry for the thrill of being the only one with their own way out.
They stab you in the back,
Yet you call them a friend.
They say they will be there until the end.
But there's no way out,
No one can help you.
You're all alone.
Such a familiar feeling.
You wish for someone to talk to,
But no one can hear your cries for help.
And if they can,
Do they care?

Erin Driving
Driving so far
For our dreamlike destination
We expected to come across
Unloading the van
We dust off the sand
Not a care for miles and miles
Peach noses and sun stained hair
Are clearly seen on each of us
The balmy breeze leaves just enough moisture
For an entrancing palette bon fire
Stars puncture the slate black sky
warm waves glimmer and roll up to our toes
we sit around the fire
I peer around the circle
And see faces of my youth
All in the same state of mind
All bringing me different memories
Feeling this night will be added to the collection
As the sky turns to a rising orange array
We are faced to seize the melancholy day
We pack up the van
Forget to wipe off the sand
As smiles of perfect bliss fill our faces
Life is worthwhile
If you live it the fullest……
never turn back and keep on going……

Ant - What happens when you were really best friends with some one but as much as you loved them you also resented them for getting everything YOU wanted, and because you were so jelious of them, the minute they did somthing screwed up to them selves you left.

You found an example of how there lives wasent as perfect as you thought, and you left... did you leave bacause you couldent help them with there problem, or did you leave bacause you would look like the better person leaving people who would "Do that"?

me i like my friends in school, but im starting to hate them at the same time. i guess the thing is that, im just by nature, a quiet person. and they are kinda loud sometimes. and i think thats cool, alot of the times they really make me laugh. but i always end up feeling left out. and i know its probably just me being paranoid, but i cant help it. like, they do something silly,and thats cool - but they sit there, crack up about it for like, half an hour, and i have to force myself to laugh just so that they dont start asking me why im not laughing with them. god i hate doing that.just, doing something you dont really want to beacuse if you dont, people will be like, 'whats up with you? whats your problem?' and you cant really go, 'you are.' shit, i cant even explain it properly. 021130
...
me shit, i wish i had a REALLY good friend i could tell everything to. its funny, beacuse ive never really believed in having best friends, and i suppose thats what i want.
ive been with practially the same people since i moved here 2 years ago. and thats been cool, and i know ive changed alot since i first came. but now its like, im still changing, but they cant accept it. i guess thats why i told my mum i wish we could move again. just so that i could be somewhere new, and i can be who i want to be at this point in time.and im sure your gonna say, well - why dont you just find new people to hang out with? well, for one thing, my school sucks major dick. and im living in a country where i dont speak the language. so my friends basically, are restricted to school friends because they speak english.and this feeling kinda gets worse everyday.
its like, im a quiet person. i know that, my friends know that. and we have alot of inside jokes, which make us laugh alot. but anytime i do something different, maybe im being super-hyper. or im talking about stuff i dont usually talk about, they have to give me wierd looks, like 'okay, why is she doing that?' and im jsut like, wtf - cant i take part in the jokes too sometimes?
021130
...
me and i see all the shit people write here, about how they have the perfect frineds, and it makes me wonder, what am i like as a friend? and what are my friends like?
im a trusting person, and someday, im gonna get screwed cause of that. sometimes i wish i wasnt, but i am. and i hope that before it gets me killed, i find a friend. beacuse the more i think about it, all i have are close aquantancies.
lately, only one of them noticed that ive been all quiet. but i cant exactly tell her whats wrong. and i feel bad, because at times, we have those moments where we really connect, and i can talk to her about anything.but other times, i feel like she has no respect for me. if i have an opinion which is different to hers, she immediately puts me down. and i hate that.

and because i get good grades, they sit there bitch at me'why do you work so hard?' i dont actually, but thats not the point. the moment they havnt done their homework, or they dont get something, they want me to help. i feel used. they dont really accept me for who i am.
but they dont even know who i am. i suppose even if i am a really trusting person, im also quite a private person. i dont think theres anybody who ever knows whats really going on in my head. which is quite contradictory actually. i always trust the people i meet. i dont stop to think whether or not they are being honest with me, but with the people i do know, i dont trust them enough to tell them what im really thinking. and so i suppose, the question is if ill ever meet someone who i can trust that much.

ahh, ive written quite alot tonight. bitched about my friends. im trying hard to think whats good about them...i cant find that much. if i go through them individually.
b - we think alike, so i can talk to her about many things. shes known me the longest, so i think that helps. we can sit, and not be talking, and i wont get that uncomfortable feeling.
l - she can always make me laugh.
m - we like the same music.
and the more i think about it... friends. i dont think i have any. except maybe my computer. =P

margadant11 She said we where friends... she said I was her best friend, then we messed around... the big problem is I think I love her, but she loves another man... now we have messed around and she told her boyfriend, so the friend thing is no more... This is not fair she started the contact that night she wanted it to happen... so why am I being punished because she lost control? Or is it my responsibility to not let that happen? But why can she give in to her desires and me I am punished if I do the same? 030121

one for the road friends are supposed to be able to tell you anything. they are supposed to tell you when you are being an ass or when you should just give up on a pointless arguement that they know you are right but the other person won't give in. But do they always tell you everything? should they always tell you everything? or is it better to live life in ignorance? 030123

ferret sometimes you'r friends will piss you off. sometimes you just want to run up to them and hit them in the face, but you don't, that's why you're still friends. if you think your friend knows something about you that you haven't told anyone else, discuss it with them, who knows, maybe they've been through the same thing, or maybe the friendship was shallow and you're just now beginning to realize that. 030208

screwing for virginity me and 2 of my friends got back from camping about a month ago. as of last night about half of their crap is gone. my friends are inconcederate bastards. as soon as we got back they unloaded at my place and went home. didnt offer to help clean, or anything. so i washed all their crap and set it in the garrage so they can get it. what do they do? they do nothing. they came over everynight for a week or 2 and never even took any of their crap home.

last night i learn that sean (one fo the 2) is going to dallas for a few weeks, then will be home for about 3 days before he goes to bootcamp, but for some reason didnt tell us he was going to dallas. so last night i go over and collect all the crap i let him barrow. i come home with a jacket, an inch of cd's (both music and games), and i know i left stuff there. that bastard just kept my stuff, as opposed to telling me when he was done so i could take it back.

so now when i get off the internet, i am going to call virgil (it would be sean too, but he is out of town now) and get him to get hiss fucking lazy ass over here so he can help me to finnally put the camping crap away.

not important Friends are the most frustrating of people. They can rip your insides to shreds with silence or a callous word or two. They leave you. They hurt you. They pour themselves into you, retreat, try to break your trust to make you forget all you know, and leave you begging for more. So I beg. And I continue to believe, to hope, that there are bonds that are not noticed. That will always remain. 030701

There's only one way I know

Love freely
Expect nothing
Give you can
Take what you need
Be ready for the worst
Be happy with the best
Don't promise more than you can give
Give more than you promised
Have faith in them
Have faith in yourself
Hurt them sometimes
Let them hurt you
Heal together

I know how to be a friend

bored1111 friends can do things to make you glad
they can make you feel stupid,embarassed and shy
they make you jealous, they make you mad
they can do things to make you cry
oh, and what a cry you'll make
all alone, in the corner , in your room
your heart being beaten till it breaks
and through the cracks starts seeping the gloom
but you must not let them know

i love them so much, so much of the time. laughing fun jokes, immaturity, not caring about the stares we get.

but they drop you so quickly. because you dump a boyfriend, write a fucking livejournal post, mess up occasionally.

i'm really sick of friends. (yet how do i want them so much?)

hardcore I don't see my bestfriend much anymore. That makes me sad because she is so good for me. I worry sometimes for her because i know she struggles with life and can find small mundane things really hard. But how lucky am I to even have a best friend of such quality and caliber in my life that all she has to say is 'ok baby' and i feel so much more content, If anyone makes you feel that way they are always worth fighting for. My soulmate and my life, oh what you do to me. I wish I could be there for you more often...but were many miles apart and for now we both must cope with this unreasonable situaion, we both know its best for us. If love is true it will wait. 041130

milo friends are so good. we need friends. just last night i though "i wouldn't be [me], was it not for my friends."

those of us who've always had friends take them for granted, friends should be appreciated and cherished - they're like your brothers and sisters. the world would be way more fucked up without them. thanks to my friends, may you die after i die so that i don't have to live without and so that we can still go out for nachos and beer on monday nights even though it's really snowing out and it's fucken cold too. you guys can pass out at my place any time you want, and even though i don't help with gas money as much i'd like to, or i don’t have a car (or get a fucking car) to drive you around just like you guys drive my ass around - i still love you.
moe, i'm not mad 'cause you clogged my toilet last weekend man, no worries.
may god bless you all and give us life to mack more girls and do more drugs…with moderation of course.

Ill be your Angel its funny how u spend ur entire life looking for somthing or someone,and then u finally stop looking cause yuo tell urself thats its not there, it'll never be there and then one day when ur back is turned, it justs pops up just like that.seemingly out of nowhere.
it can be anything, a letter, a call, an e-mail.but it comes in a way that u never expected. It happens so fast too.
In the space of 1 year i've created the strongest bond that 2 friends can have and a few days ago i think no i believe that ive found my missin piece. but being the unlucky person that i am, im stayin low. i really do not want to jinx it.

flowerock. I forgot how I ever became or was blessed with a_friend... I remember friendships that meant traveling hours to hug and talk about life, to be there and listen to their emotional_tetris. I remember inside jokes and silly made up games and looking out for eachother when we met new potential_friends, or were just too drunk to safely cross the road. I remember sleeping on floors when I couldn't make it home, and having them do the same. I remember cooking together and drawing together and playing instruments we didn't know how to play. I remember walking around neighborhoods and in_the_desert just to walk_together and see the same things.
But I don't remember it being difficult to get there, I don't remember feeling so insecure and disconnected.
Should I just ask "can we be friends?"
Last time I asked I explained what I meant by friends, I want to build a ship that can float I said, not just a flimsy raft...
I'm afraid of making what ever kind of friendship might exist suddenly_awkward by trying to understand or agree upon it... does it have to be official? Can it just happen? But does it just happen? Don't we have to help it happen?
I get very emotional and feel dissapointed at times, sometimes in general, sometimes with myself for letting myself believe that someone might be feeling the way I am feeling about being friends...
And then I get into loops about it...
Isn't it silly and even kind of weird to be so worried about this? Or to be so interested in friendship with certain people? It's similar to falling in love, but more confusing, love is messy, we accept this and lovers need to accept our messiness or it probably isn't going to work out... but friends are a whole 'not her territory... or are they? Should they be? I guess it's more the societal normal thay cause such distress. I just want to hang out, to act like the brothers and sisters that we are, to enjoy this life and our human souls, to laugh together, and untangle things together.
I have a lover, a best friend, and this is what he is for tok, of course, but I want to have friends too. I want to build positive friendships with other women. Because I really have not had a sister in a very long time and I miss that. I miss girl_nights watching movies that made us cry with chocolate in our pajamas and taking baths while talking and that was ok, we drew the bath for eachother, that was normal, we combed eachother hair and dressed eachother when we felt ugly and sad... we reminded eachother that were beautiful and alive... there is something special to me about the friendships between women. I didn't realize how special then, and then I forgot and even feared other_women, and now I am lost and I just feel kind of creepy, like if I approach the women I feel love for in this way that they'll find me too needy, lacking grace and proper procedure or something... like I might scare them away. Who am I to climb into your friend_zone like you made me a spot there?
And then there's life... what if we do build friendships and then lose track of time and space? Neglected and faded friendships cause heartache too...

I miss my best friend, we still talk, but jot really... just the ocassional I love you I miss you we should get together... but there's a lot of physical distance now, states between us and years spent apart.

How_do_i_friend? Do you have a friend_request button?
160118
...
flowerock. And you know... sometimes I just feel like an over excited puppy and I just blurt out innapropriate or poorly thought out things that just don't help at all. I'm not always the best at staying focused, either. I feel more needy than helpful and I think it shows and I don't want to burden anyone with that. 160118
...
flowerock. But you know... while I'm rambling on here about friends... there are certainly moments that show me friendship is there. Just that they thought to include me in a conversation or show me a picture or they made a joke and tool the time to repeat it because I was too far away to hear it but wanted to laugh too... that they were considerate about some thing they knew bothered me because they remembered I said that it did... because they sometimes ju st laugh so sincerely with me. These moments really stick in me and make me feel loved, even if it isn't me specifically but just that they're good Hans who know that this feels good. I feel a depth of gratitude that I cannot explain for this. I also feel insecure in expressing this to them because it seems like more than they might want to hear or feel responsible for... would it make them feel obligated then to make sure to act this way for me? Can sincerity be tainted by need? 160118
...
flowerock. That last line... I don't know if I really thought about how strange that sounds... I don't need this... such as I want this... and I do want sincerity... but I think sincerity has become hard to identify, for me anyway, maybe just hard to accept. 160118
