Betrayed by My Best Friend

Sometimes the people you thought were closest to you turn out to be your worst enemies.

There we were, both so young,

Just standing with the crowd.

We were the closest of friends,

Laughing so loud.

As time went on,

I started trusting you more and more.

I told you things that I,

Hadn't told anyone before.

I opened up to you,

I gave you my heart,

Then you turn right around,

And tear it apart.

You think that I don't know,

What you're saying behind my back.

You think you're so perfect,

But there's still so much that you lack.

You predend that you don't know,

Why I'm in so much pain.

Secretly hating you,

Betrayed by you yet again.

You think that you can just,

Butt into my life.

But if you really want to make me happy,

You must pay the price.

And now that I've broken free,

From your deadly curse,

I realize your the one who ruined my life,

And continued to make it worse.

Now you're angry with me,

Because I refuse to answer your call.

Because I'm trying to forget you,

So I won't have to fall.

So now, just remember,

When I turn my back on you,

It's because you did the same to me,

Something horible to live through.

Never again will I trust you.

Never again will I call you a friend.

Never again will you ruin my life,

Our friendship has come to an end.

How dare you say that you care,

How dare you even try.

How can you be so heartless,

And try to make me believe your lies.

I've learned form my mistakes.

I've learned from what I've done.

I've learned not to trust you.

You, or anyone.

I've been betrayed by a friend.

Fantastic poem Carly. I expect nothing less. Flowed nicely, and I could really feel the hurt and anger (just a little bit) put into this.

i've been betrayed by my friends my whole life... but if you don't give people a chance, it just makes you hollow inside... it is better to have lived, than not lived at all... good job

AWW I know how you feel! IT's awful, you try to leave them alone and start all over, and they get mad at you because they are still "trying to forgive you and be friends" because they are under the impression that you were the one who betrayed the friendship.

Great emotion. Good job.

Yes, I know. It's so confusing. Glad you liked it. ^^

Very nice poem. Nicely written, breaks the flow a few times, but still very effective. Just want to say that life is never completely "ruined". Just remember that through everything you go through. :) It's kept me going. Xxx

I love it! That's what poetry is all about, expressing your emotions. Friends can hurt, and I've been there and felt that. Thanks for your inspiration!
