My Dear Friend

My Dear Friend

A Story by Outsider
"

Most of us have left them behind... or so we think.

"

What happened between us? Wasn't I there for you when you needed me? Didn’t I make you smile when you were sad? I was there for you when your parents fought, when your dog died, and when you just felt alone. So why? Why are you leaving me? 

We used to play for hours without end, laughing, playing tag, hide-and-go-seek, Soldiers, and bandits. Remember that time you hit that kid when he said I was nothing? You believed in me! You loved me! We were best friends, so where are you going?

I love you my friend and I’ll always be here for you. Even now as you push me away and shut me out. Even as you tell me to leave you alone and to stop showing up. I will always be here for where else can I go? 

You needed me and I was there, but the truth is I was the one that needed you. I can’t live without you, I cannot be here without you. I am a part of you, we are one in the same, we are two sides of a coin. I will always be with you, you can try to leave me but you can never really get away from me. 

You might forget about me and move on with your life but I’ll still be there. You might grow up to be a successful adult and have everything you want, but I'll still be whispering in your ear. I’ll help you without you even knowing I'm here, without a single worry who’s voice I am. For I am your voice, my Dear Friend.

I’m the voice that will stay here in your head until the day we die. But don’t worry about me, my Dear Friend a part of me will live on in your children and your children’s children. I will never truly leave you even after death. So you can push me to the back of your mind and think I will go away but your Dear Old Imaginary Friend will never leave.

Didn't we all use to have an imaginary friend?

love your feeling your depth your passion and your knowing that you remain a part of the friend forever even thru the blood of the children and more
when the friend of a lifetime dies or pushes you away or goes on with his life that has become more important than his once needed beloved friend a tragedy an infinite sadness permeates the heart of the loser great work indeed

I still have an imaginary friend but don't usually admit it. That voice does stay with us.

I do have a suggestion. The one-sided conversation makes the "friend" seem desperate. I thought at first it was a stalker. Suggest you consider creating a dialogue between the two.

This is a legitiately good story. It may be reminiscent of the emotions felt when watching Bingbong from "Inside Out" fade away. Personally, i would like to see an imaginary character become more bitter with thier passing infinity, but i respect your choice to have him/her tug on our heartstrings.
