Usually family is family and friends is friends. 

As of lately because of someone like her, like him, like you. 

I'm still confused whether or not she's supposed to be a friend my family or just the enemy. 

But you know what they say, "keep your friends close, but your enemies closer". 

Its just not fair that everyday someone like you can walk with the devil Monday through Saturday, then show up in church on a Sunday and say "Amen, everything is alright", but really is it? I mean you can trick who you want but you can't trick God himself; because he knows what you did. And so do I. 

I have days where it completely bothers me. I'll give her that, but then I see someone like you and I ask myself, "How can someone be so content with screwing over the people that they love to get to something that isn't going to last for over a second". It's still a mystery to me. 

I don't know if she wants me to thank her or something but she acts like it was a favor. To ruin one of my relationships. To stab me in the back when Ive been nothing but kind and grateful to you. And all you. All she did was rip everything from under me taking my sanity, my patience. Everything. She took it all, my pride, my dignity. All of it. And it was foolish to think that she wouldn't have attempted to get what she wanted. Because she always wanted what she couldn't have even if it wasn't hers for the taking. 

Someone like you have put me through pain that I don't want to go through. And I all that pain comes back at some point in my life.

And maybe it'll come and slap her in the face but then I remember what a stupid thing we've fallen out over. I mean a guy that she thought I liked. The shitty fact is that she or the you of the story is my sister. But you would've never guessed? Trust me, neither did I.
