THE FRIENDSHIP THAT BETRAYED ME
He blew life into me like a sweet summer breeze,
Stole my heart in an instant,
made me weak in the knees…
He seemed so sincere when he looked into my eyes
Saying the things I’ve waited to hear my whole life.
I thought he was different…
I thought he was real.
I never thought I could feel the way he made me feel.
I don’t understand why he wasted the time
Knowing there was nothing to gain on his end or mine.
It was perfectly senseless… not one reason why.
He disappeared on me without saying goodbye.
He had me floating on air, then let me crash so hard to the ground.
It’s too much to wrap my mind around.
Why play at being real?
No one wins in the end.
Someone always gets hurt when the other pretends.
Why say all those things when you don’t mean a word?
It’s mean and it’s cruel…
it’s completely absurd.
Now I’m left here to wonder what could’ve gone wrong,
Why he just stopped calling, caring, why he strung me along?
My thoughts consume me
like fire consumes dry crops.
Another sleepless night just might drive me insane.
I toss and I turn over and over again.
I can’t help but feel like I’ve lost my best friend.
But a friend would be honest,
A friend wouldn’t play with your heart.
A friend wouldn’t lie to you right from the start.
A friend would still be there come tomorrow…
A friend would comfort, not cause you sorrow.
A friend would go with you through the storm
Does he think about my angelic eyes
filled with tears because he lied?
Does my memory haunt him in his sleep?
Maybe for him it’s probably not that deep.
I truly wish him all the best,
Hope he’s okay and finds happiness…
Hope he finds everything he’s looking for….
Good health, true love, riches and so much more.
It breaks my heart,
That it had to end before it got to start.
