Betrayed Friend Poem by Teens

This poem really is about many people. I have been betrayed by people I thought were great friends many times. My experiences have made me very self conscious, sensitive and I now trust hardly anyone. This poem is really an outline of my life.

I can relate my friendship was like that, I was there for her before she knew any of the them. She didn't ditch me she did something far worse. She pretended that I belonged with them and...

Do You Remember?

©

Published: December 2013

Do you remember when we were little kids,
dancing freely in the meadow,
our hair flowing in the breeze,
Playing all day without a care in the world,
Do you remember?

Do you remember that first day of school,
when you were there to ease my fears
and I was there to ease yours,
we were practically inseparable, you never saw one without the other
Do you remember?

Do remember when we exchanged those hearts,
"Best Friends Forever"
we played all day
and stayed up all night
Do you remember?

Do you remember when your parent's divorced
and I was the one you talked to,
To cry, rant and complain
while I sat, listened, and tried to help
Do you remember?

But you must remember when you first started to insult me
How I went home crying everyday as you began to make me an outcast
but I still hung out with you in the morning,
refusing to believe the reality
Do you remember?

Do you remember when I finally realized,
that the sweet, caring girl I had once known was gone,
had been replaced by a vicious monster I can hardly recognize
who tells every secret I have ever had.
and I gave up any hope of the real you ever returning
Do you remember?

Do you know how I feel now,
You have ripped a whole in my heart
that will never be filled, you gave up the best friendship you will ever have
just because you wanted to be popular, to be part of the "In Crowd"
Do you know how I feel?

Do you realize that every single time I see you in the halls,
or in an old picture, I relive all the memories we have ever had
and it hurts like a cut being torn open again. And  All I wonder is if
you remember when we were best friends, secret keepers, soul sisters?
I know I do.

I can relate my friendship was like that, I was there for her before she knew any of the them. She didn't ditch me she did something far worse. She pretended that I belonged with them and that they liked me but I realized that she was two faced. She would talk about me and tell everyone my secrets but I never told anyone hers. That hurt so much yet some part of me misses her and begs to go back to the days where I was oblivious to the hurt. What's funny is that this happened in elementary schooland heaven was not on my side because all through middle school and into high school she was there she was popular and happy, she was there to remind me that I was a loser, I was garbage. How is it possible that I did the right thing I made the right choices yet I'm all alone. Everyone talks about her, everyone is happy with her but I'm forgotten, I was left behind, I'm alone.
