I'm worried that my friend is slipping away.

Worried that I can't trust her anymore.

I wan t to be able to believe every word she says,

but I'm not sure I can

The emotions are warring against each other inside me.

I want to trust her, but I'm afraid I can't.

The trust part of me is pulling me one way,

the scared part of me is pulling me the other way.

Conflicting emotions are bad enough,

not trusting one of the people you hold near and dear,

is even worse, espicially when you're confused.

When you have no where to turn,

you usually go to your best friend,

even before you confide in family.

But, when you have non one to trust,

who do you go to?

Nobody, that's who.

You write all of your ideas down on paper,

and then you eventually lose your mind,

when you run out of sheets of paper,

or your pen runs out of ink.

Not even your family can console you in this time.

Ha, when all this happens, you feel alone,

but surronded by loneliness that smothers you.

I want to trust her,

but I'm scared I can't.
