Me you betrayed
I built a shield around my fears
Gave trust to those I thought they cared
A title as a friend of trust
Foe in black dust, bread burnt no crust!
I shared with you my personal tears
My faults and secrets kept for years
Now I must hang my head in shame
As you desert me, and defame.
I never dreamt you’d let me down
That one sad argument would change the tone
A friend I thought I knew so well
Has sold me to a living hell
Everybody knows my toil and strife
My secrets now an open book
Betrayed with a twisted knife
Toxic words from my friend turned enemy
Who with others laugh at the betrayal of me
Petty talk we shared as people do
Has surfed the air, everybody knows
My other friends no longer speak to me
Because of tales you’ve told to contaminate me.
I bow my head and cry in shame
My personal secrets scars my name
Yet still you walk with tales to tell
I’m the song of the gossips
Mine is a living hell
So many were glad to see the fall
Of a friendship they never liked at all
Jealousy has given gossips joy
As my life is played out for all to enjoy.
I built a shield, around my fears
Look now, it has become hot tears
As my friend, so I thought has betrayed
The secrets of my life, to all her friends
Forgetting that I too do know
The things about you, others don’t
As time moves up and the gossip fades
Your day will come when you’ll be betrayed!
