Goodbye Rike

Filed under: Uncategorized — gayandy @ 12:40 pm

It’s now 8PM Saturday night. I’m sad to say but this is it, no more Rike in my life.
Rike and me had another big @$$ fight today. Sh*† was flying everywhere!
My desktop keyboard is smashed to pieces.
He lit matches on fire and threw the flaming matches all over my room.
He tried to choke Daisy my dog.
My dad and mom weren’t home. They went out to dinner and a movie.
Mike was here with me and helped me kick Rike out of the house.

The streets will never escape Rike.
He lived on the streets for 2 years. He’s street wise.
I can take Rike out of the streets. But I can’t take the streets out of Rike.

This will be the last time you’ll ever see Rike in my blog.



  1. I'm sorry to hear this, David. It sounds like Rike must have been 'high' on something to be acting so crazy. He is really giving up a good thing by making your friendship end this way. It's his great loss. Sorry about that.

  3. I was trying to finish a posting for my blog and got tired… then, I noticed your post in my blog following area…. OMG, David… I'm SO sorry… I feel like crying because I know how much he meant to you… You know that I felt worried about your friendship for a long time… Still, this turn of events, just feels horrible … I wish it didn't happen like this… you deserve to be treated like the true friend that you have been, to Rike… I'm afraid you're right tho. Rike is too much like a guy that I once loved. He doesn't 'mean' to do the things that he does, but, he can't stop himself, either. I wish he was different inside, than I think he is… I blame the streets for most of this too, but, at some point, even that, becomes an excuse… We can't go through life, abusing the people that we love, because we've had a tough time… It just hurts too much, to try so hard, to help a guy like this, and end up on the wrong side of his anger. I'm sure he'll be back, looking for forgiveness, David. It's predictable, this madness… You should, of course, forgive him, but, how can you trust that next time, he won't put you in the hospital with his anger? I don't think you can take that chance, but, I know you'll be tempted… I'll pray for you to make the right decision, young David… luv and hugs, tman<3

  4. I’ve just read your blog about your day, the 14th, but also about Rike.I’ll comment about your day, which was really interesting, but I just want to say how sorry I am for Rike, but more for you.I think you were probably his last chance of throwing off his bad experiences on the street, but I know how good a friend you have been to him, and him to you.To lose a friend like that, because you just can’t handle his violent behaviour is inevitable, but devastating.You have all my sympathy, and {( Extra Big Hug)}

  8. It sounds like Rike is off on an ego trip; a lot of gang type guys have an attitude like this. (they will eventually find out what jail does for the ego!) However you are not giving us much detail on what you guys are fighting about. If he is being selfish all the time and is just using you, well what can you do but cut your losses. But it is hard on the head when a friend's behavior is unpredictable and you should let him know this. Rike is an older teen now and taking tantrums like a 10yr old is not something you guys should put up with. And he can't use the 'street' excuse for the rest of his life. You say you talk to him (your bff); can't you get him to open up and say what is bothering him? Self esteem issues? Sexuality? Insecurity? Jealousy? (could he be jealous that you are paying attention to other friends?) At your age your friends are your most valuable possessions. I think you should go for a walk with him and have a long serious talk; that you can't be friends unless he behaves like a friend and that involves loyalty and trust, and no craziness, but he has to tell you wtf is bothering him. Don't write him off yet cos school will start soon and see which way he goes. Friends do have their ups and downs. I know what you feel like Andy and it is a feeling of betrayal, and it hurts. Maybe put the ball back in his court and let him know you are his friend as long as he behaves like one. bfn – Wayne 😦 (at least keyboards are cheap to replace!)

  10. Omg he did all that!?I would've kicked him out as soon as he laid his hands on my dog,but he broke your keyboard and tried to set your room on fire O.O It's good that you let him go or else you could've hurt you or your family.

  13. That really sucks. But it sounds like you've done all you can and more for him, and until he gets his shit together the same thing is gonna happen. One good skill to have is to know when to let a friend go…maybe it's time with Rike.
