A poem about a girl whom I thought was my friend, and I confided in her, and she was only pretending to get close so she could use me..and when I broke up with her brother...she metaphorically smashed my face into a brick wall. Lovely.

I knew all along what you were like

Sadistic and Vicious

Knew what you would do to me in the end

Break all bonds

I knew how you’d let me go

An angry note

I knew how you’d hurt me

A rude shove

A slap in the face

Yet somehow I couldn’t stay away

You were a great friend

Great at pretending

I knew you were using me

Drinking from my Mountain Dew

Borrowing my stuff

Once I broke up with your brother

Things tensed up

I saw through you

Yet I continued to laugh with you

Joke with you

Walk with you

Write with you

Eat with you

And then.



An angry letter

Addressed to me

I never read it

Only knew what it possessed

My friend read it

Ripped it into a million pieces

Thrown out the bus window

Pieces fluttering in the wind

Like our friendship

Shattered and torn

Lying on the pavement


I knew.
