Ok if this is any one else the situation im in is my best friend has just got a new boyfriend(she is a gal) this doesnt bother me because i became friends with her as she was currently going out with some other guy that i do not know. she is seemingly pushing me away and i have ABSOLUTLY no idea why! if any one can enlighten me of this terrible burden (of which i have written a total of 8 poems only 3 are up on this site) i would be endebted to you eternally. If the person reading this is Keeper of Light than Les told me you might be able to help by giving me advice, the only reason i and doing this on this web page is because all my poems relate to this situation. though i am afraid if the problem is solved i will not be able to write poetry any more, this burden gets about a thousand pounds heavyer every day. if any one can help me you can e-mail me at Santosarcanis@yahoo.com or tell me here on this site.

thanks for listening.

While most of my postings consist of any idiotic thought that pops into my head, I will attempt to actually be helpful for a change.

Poetry comes from deep within
If you are a person of deep feelings and strong emotions
the words will well up inside you and release themselves
sometimes when you least expect it
do not "try" so hard
let come what may come
it WILL come

Michael,

Regarding your best friend:

Your insecurity is showing. She seems to be taking the extra time to get to know her new boyfriend and you must seem like a third wheel to her. Try backing off, give her some space. If you and her are best friends everything will work out. Keep on crowding her and you run the risk of driving her away permanently. The ball is in your court. Good luck

I agree.

You wrote: "my best friend has just got a new boyfriend ... [and] she is seemingly pushing me away." MOST LIKELY it has to do with the new boyfriend. Maybe he's jealous -- or envious of the closeness of your friendship with her. Maybe it's just that she wants to give that relationship her first-best energy so there are lots of things (including you) that are getting shoved to the back burner.

ASSUMING that's the case, it would be an act of pure friendship for you to let her do that.

But I have a question: Why are we ASSUMING at all? If she really is (has been) your best friend, why don't you just ASK HER?

I don't mean that as a rhetorical question. (Meaning: The answer I'm looking for is not "Duh!") I'm really asking: SOMETHING is preventing you from asking her: "Why are you shutting me out? And if it's because of the new boyfriend, do you want me to just give you space? And if so, can we at least connect once in a while?"

What is that thing that's preventing you?

THE ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION IS WHAT YOU NEED TO BE WRITING ABOUT.

(That will be five cents, please.)

Dear Marjorie,

Michael Carvalho may or may not check back here and read your message, so I'm replying to you. Two things:

1. CARVALHO is a Portuguese name, and most people with that name have ancestors from Portugal and/or Brazil. If you search for "Carvalho" on the internet you find a lot of material in Portuguese.

2. At the top of this thread, the name Michael Carvalho shows up in blue type. You can click on that and get a link to Michael's email, in case you want to contact him that way. You may prefer to search the internet, though, because there are some CARVALHO family-geneology sites, and those folks would probably be very happy to hear from you and find out how you're related to them.

Portuguese names are relatively common in the Goa area of India, where Portugal had a colony once.

Thanks, Linda -- I used to know that. Portuguese names are all over Southern Africa, too, and Portuguese is an official language of Mozambique and Angola.

Hello Mike

Remember someone 24 years ago, i am from switzerland and was traveling around in USA.
Your Mother we use to call her Boot's has her birthday on the same day as my sister Brigitte 1th May. If you are the one i am searching since quit a long time you have 2 older brothers and a older sister. Your mother was working at that time in Newport Beach in the Bank of America.

I think often about your family and if everybody is well.

Thank you
