Betrayed Friend Poem by Teens

Lies And Shattered Friendships

This poem is about struggles of school friends. Recently, I have found myself alone. I thought my friends were trustworthy and kind, but I was wrong.

I hear them laughing.
They don't think I notice,

Every word spilled from venomous lips
Attacks the fragile skin and seeps through like a stain.

Words are forever incised.

But the friendly and inviting smiles they use against me,
Faking what I thought was real.

My mind plays tricks,
The mirror shies away.
The eyes I see refuse to meet me.
I'll leave them be.

A poor soul would take my place and be forever challenged
If I were no longer here.
They would find a helpless new victim.

I understand what it is like to feel this way. As I was growing up and started school I didn't realize how much hate and envy could be in the world. But now that I'm in high school, I let things go and now I just ignore it for I have good friends that love and care for me. I hope they just don't end the same way.
