The betrayal of a friend can be hard to live down.

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!
