Betrayed Friend Poem

Are We Really Friends?

This poem I wrote when I thought I had lost my best friend to people who didn't deserve an awesome person like her and turned her to their side. I was momentarily confused at that time and still don't know what an actual friend is. I guess I won't until I find one. I hope someone else can relate to what I am talking about.

Best Friends?

Published: May 2010

What are best friends?
Are they always there for you?
Do they keep secrets?
Do they hide from you?

Do they stay by your side?
Or do they trash you to your enemies?
Do they comfort you in tough times?
Or do they make fun of you like you have fleas?

Do they pretend they care?
Do they stab you in the back?
Do they actually care?
Or do they use you?

I don't know what a best friend is
Because I thought I had one
But it turns out,
She makes me feel like a fool.

I defended her in school
When everyone else made fun
I hung out with her
Even if it meant not being cool.

After everything I do
She ends up taking advantage of me
Now she barely confides in me
Or even consider me a best friend.

She has kicked me out of her life
Now I'm just another person that goes to school with her.
She is liked at school now,
With friends galore,
But she has kicked out the one
Who loved her for her.

So tell me,
Is this what "best friends" do?
Because if it is
I would rather not have one,
I wouldn't want to hurt you.

This poem is so true my friend did that to me last year and then this year she came back being all nice and we became bffs again then half way through the year she does it again oh well I gave her a second chance last time but when she comes back crying this time she is not getting a third chance

PS it was really nice reading about other peoples experiences we should start a blog or something :)

Yes, I know what you mean! I had an amazing friend and she turned on me for stupid things but at least now I know who I can trust!x

I have... HAD a friend like that. We were friends our WHOLE lives until high school when she totally kicked me to the curb for a guy, and it's like I never even mattered to her.

I completely understand. I don't really want to share exactly what happened. But yeah it happened to me too. It still hurts and I do miss her but I gave her a second chance and well...at least now I know.
