Betrayed Friend Poems by Teens

Poems for When a Friend Betrays You

Trust is the most important component of any relationship. If you do not trust a person, you probably do not consider them your friend. The building blocks of friendship are based on sharing the deepest parts of yourself and believing that they will be held sacred. You believe this about your friend and he believes it about you. The more you trust each other, the deeper the friendship that you have built. If you don't have trust in your friend, you don't have a friendship.

One Secret

You walk away as I cry,
you turn your back on my tears.
To imagine you capable of such things,
A monstrous idea indeed.

I trusted you as you broke me.
I was there when you needed,
But when I needed, where were you?

Pretending to be someone you aren't,
To impress your "friends."

I guess you will never know all I did,
All I've done, simply for you.

You forget I know the real you.
I know the person that hides beneath.
I know things about you, that others don't.

Don't worry. Your secrets are safe with me.
I won't betray your trust. As you did to me.

You were my friend.
Alas, that mistake no longer lives.
Only the pain in my heart, shows its existence.

I wish I knew what happened,
For you to do as you did.
But I guess that's one secret,
I'll never be privileged to.
