Broken Friendship

We said it was forever - said we'd never part,
I knew it was a line, but I still gave both of you my heart.

Said you would stay, promised you could,
You chose to walk away, I knew you would.

You're not there anymore, my dearest friends,
I hate to say this, but it is our end.

By day you're one person, by night another,
Neither of them have anything to do with each other.

I sit here and cry for you - not for me,
What you've become, I wish you could see.

In your life you make friends that you're sure are true,
Nothing else matters, except what's between them and you.

You don't know if anyone has ever before felt this way,
For them you took breaths, you wanted to be alive everyday.

It hurts to loose a friend, it gives you the saddest frown,
And when a second one bails, it's like getting kicked while
you're down.

And it hurts to be accused of something you didn't do,
You guys should know better than anyone, that I would never even think to.

You planted a knife in my back,
You were my life, but now, my memories of you are completely black.

I am afraid to love another, but I know I shouldn't be,
Because the people in my life, are perfect for me.

There is this game I play,
Where I close my eyes and fade away.

I can't believe it's true,
but in this place, I can't even remember that I loved you.

You can't fix something that's already done.

I know how you feel, I had a friend, we were best pals. That was until drugs became a thing,

"Everyone does it!"
"It won't kill you!"
"Can't I have a little fun?!"
"You over react to everything!"

These are some of the nicer comments that he gave and the funny thing is, we met when we were in 4th grade (10 yrs. old), this started to happen in 12th grade (16-18 years old)
My friends told me that I shouldn't even be friends with him. I said,
"I've know him for pretty much my entire life! I can't just drop him dead."

Little did I know he didn't feel the same,
and you don't know how badly I wanted to blow my brains out that night.

This is really touching, and makes me remember my ex friend. We were so good together that I almost couldn't breath without him, but all along he ruined everything by cooking up a false story behind my back, but he would come to me and pretend like a saint, tell me sweet nothing and go to my family to tell them some fake story that I still refuse to believe, I died a million times when I heard all the lies. Then I gave him what he wanted and moved on, 11 years of friendship only end up in regrets and Pains, till now I can't stop crying but am trying to be strong for myself. But I never stop wondering why someone you called your best friend will turn around ruin the best part of you and leave you empty.

I know exactly how you feel. Once I too had a very close friend we were like sisters and we told each other everything. One day she made up this lie that I swore at her and chucked her dirties, then one week later she made up this rumor that I was going out with this guy. Eventually it got to him and he told his family (idiot)..then two days later another close friend that I knew for 4 years believed these rumors and betrayed me, and started talking about me. I changed schools now and I have a new friend but it still hurts and gets to me from time to time, and sometimes it effects the friendship me and my new friend have..

My "bestest friend" or so I thought. We met when we were both 19 and had a strong friendship till I was 31. or so I thought. I would hear things from another friend, telling me "she isn't what you think" I did not believe it, I could not believe it. When we would argue or get into it, it seemed I was always the one who would initiate the "makeup". I did not care if I did, I just wanted my friend back, she was everything to me, more than any man could ever be. We were like one, dressing the same, acting the same, talking the same. It just seemed natural like we were one.
