My Best Friend?
I thought she was my best friend
Forever friends is what we said
Not long did it take her to forget
She's moved on to others now
We see each other now and then
And it seemed to be okay
We chatted and laughed and had some fun
Till she found she needed to insult me
She talked about her writing
And how I could not
Her reply to my disgust was
You can manage the cat sat on the mat
I nearly cried at this point
So upset was I
Why did I not stand up for myself
Is what I hear you cry
I do not know the answer
As to why I sat and took this
I know though now
She's not my friend
My other friend was mortified
At sitting through this abuse
But what could he say
An argument in public, whats the use?
I laughed it off and carried on
But my heart was breaking
She carried on insulting me
Till I could take no more
She seemed to think if she laughed a bit
That would make it right
But I'm the one that's hurting
And I'm not looking for a fight
She wants to meet for lunch real soon
But you'll understand that I'm not keen
I just want friends who like me
Not use me to make themselves look smart
I think I won't be going to lunch
I think I'll meet other friends
One's who like to talk as equals
And appreciate what I am
I may not be Charlotte Bronte
Or even Currer Bell
But I hope I can do better
Than the cat sat on the mat
Please let me know if you think
My ex-friend was right
For if that is the sad truth
I will stop writing now
I have a new best friend now
The best I could ever wish for
He encourages me to write
And be the best I can
I want to thank him for his friendship
For always being around
For picking up the pieces that day
When my confidence she'd shattered
