this poem is sort of a warning to all those people who are close with some, telling you to be careful, they aren't what they seem. They are going to stab you in your back and even deprive you of your pride.

I have an important lesson to be learnt

That people isn’t always what they seem

Malicious and vicious according to me

It isn’t a surprise.

Best friends stay true

They don’t do what you do

Lie and abuse my dignity

And left me pride-less.

Converse about me to her

The demon in the flesh

I hope one day you will realise

What her game plan is.

You’ve become a replica of her

And stolen her malevolent ways.

She will hurt you like she did to me

And I hope you get it worse than me.

She will stab you in your back

Kick you when your down

Shoot you from a distance &

Turn you into a clown.

But wait you already are

Because you’ve fallen in to her trap of deceit.

But I hope you know

When you find out who she really his

don’t come running back to me.

Thank you. I was able to feel this because i have been through the same exact thing, fooled by someone i thought was my friend. I was very susceptible but this made me to be stronger. Thank you xxx.
