A Friend or A Fake

The days when you'd braid my hair

and we'd dance

talk and sing,

remember and laugh


I could tell you anything

and you'd trust me with your life,

but a stupid conversation misunderstood

and now you won't look me in the eye


What kind of feeling just withers away

for an upset that affected only one day?

Did you ever truly love me

like you said?

Did you even consider me a friend?



No! Maybe I don't want your answer!

Better to believe it was my fault

than to realize you were faking all along!

If you were only ever playing...


Then I gave all my most private thoughts,

my deepest feelings,

every fantasy desire,

however fleeting,

to someone who never cared.

You only acknowledged me because I was the only one there


But I guess you have him now.

  • Comment from author about the poem: I learned so much from you, and with you. Maybe the most important lesson was not to trust people who walk away so easily.

    Some people do fail you, but the ones that matter never do.

      I guess. Lately I've just run into a lot of the same, this is the one that's hurt me the most.
