losing a friend who was not genuine at all.

False friend lost.

lies, bitter words, lies,

why? what have I done to you,

lies, bitter words you say,

always about me but why?

What wrong did I do you?

We have been friends since kids,

Yet you see me as a threat.

I was there for you,

Yet acid words roll off your poisoned tongue,

Have you a jealous mind?

I wanted you to share my highs,

Help me through the lows,

As I would for you.

Now your crocodile tears do not move me,

Confronted you ask for mercy,

Just go and speak no more ill of me.

Trust is gone as is our bond,

You played to your audience with lies,

Now your game is up and you lost,

Lost it all, yet it is I who weeps again.

Hello there. i have been out of booksie for a long time and with my comeback this time i intend to make more time for it.
a very powerful piece and i must say one is better off without a false friend. having had the same experience, i can gladly say you got it down true to every word, rough and raw, but all truth.
