Friendship Poems about Betrayal

"Et tu Brute, then fall Caesar". Perhaps the most famous words in English literature speak of a betrayal of a friend. Julius Caesar is saying that if even his close friend Brutus is stabbing him, then he has no hope. Our friends are the ones that we expect will stand by us through thick and thin. When are going through hard times, we ask that they be "like a bridge over troubled waters". If we cannot count on our friends to pull us through, then who can we count on?

  1. 1. Why Play At Being Real?

    I was inspired to write this poem after being stood up for the 3rd time by a guy who had led me to believe he was completely into me. Phone conversations in the middle of the night that would last for hours, dates that were absolutely awesome on every level, unbelievable rapport and compatibility, physical attraction... just a lot in common... like twin flames. But then he started making dates but never showed or even called, sometimes until a week or two later. Then he just stopped... no closure.

    Poem About Being Played

    He blew into my life like a sweet summer breeze,
    Stole my heart in an instant, made me weak in the knees...

    He seemed so sincere when he'd look in my eyes
    And say the things I've waited to hear my whole life.

    I thought he was different... I thought he was real.
    I never thought I could feel the way he made me feel.

    I just don't understand why he wasted the time
    When there was nothing to gain on his end or mine.

    It was perfectly senseless...not one reason why
    He would just disappear without saying goodbye.

    He had me floating on air, then let me crash to the ground.
    It's too much to wrap my mind around.

    Why play at being real? No one wins in the end.
    Someone always gets hurt when the other pretends.

    Why say all those things when you don't mean a word?
    It's mean and it's cruel...it's completely absurd.

    Now I'm left here to wonder what could've gone wrong,
    Why he just stopped calling, why he strung me along?

    My thoughts, they consume me, like a crop consumes rain.
    Another sleepless night just might drive me insane.

    I toss and I turn over and over again.
    I can't help but feel like I've lost my best friend.

    But a friend would be honest, wouldn't play with your heart.
    A friend wouldn't lie to you right from the start.

    A friend would still be there come tomorrow...
    A friend would comfort, not cause you sorrow. 

    I wonder if....whatever his reasons may be
    That surely he knew his actions would hurt me?

    And I wonder if from time to time
    The thought of me might cross his mind?

    Does he think about my "angel" eyes
    Filled with tears because he lied?

    Does my memory haunt him in his sleep?
    For him it's probably not that deep.

    I truly wish him all the best,
    Hope he's okay and finds happiness... 

    Finds everything he's looking for....
    Good health, true love and so much more.

    I miss him, and it breaks my heart,
    That it had to end before it got to start.

  3. 2. Abandon

    I lost my best friend. She helped me through the worst of times like when I was picked on and when I was having guy troubles. She was the one person I looked up to for advice. And she betrayed me. Now I have no one...

    Poem About Friend No Longer Being There For You

    I looked up to you when times were bad.
    I looked up to you when I was sad.

    I always laughed when you were by my side,
    until you went behind my back and lied.

    I felt so betrayed and so alone
    and began to realize your true colors that had shown.

    You hurt me so badly that nothing can compare.
    You were the one with whom my secrets I thought I could share.

    You helped me through bad times when people were so mean,
    and now that you're gone, I feel so deceived.

    You lied to my face, one only could tell.
    You left me alone; now I feel like I'm in hell.

    I have no one to turn to to ask for advice.
    Your leaving me like this is like being squeezed by a vice.

    I'm in pain; it's not easy to see, and since you've been gone,
    I have no one beside me.

    I try to find more friends that are as fun as you,
    but the more I try, I realize there is nothing more I can do.

    You're gone forever, whether you know it or not.
    Me being stuck in this world alone like this, I'd rather be shot.

    Goodbye forever; you ruined my ability to forgive,
    and now like this for the rest of my life I shall live.

  5. 3. First And Last

    • By Claire
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2010

    I wrote this for a friend who hasn't been much of a friend.

    Poem About Moving Past Broken Friendship

    Today will be my last and today will be my first.
    The last time I get walked on by you,
    The first time I've moved so far from you.
    The last time I will wait for you to arrive,
    The first time I know for sure I can survive.
    The last time you apologize for your mislead ways,
    The first time my feet are at home in the sand and the waves.
    The last time I will worry if you are all right,
    The first time I can watch the sea all night.
    Today is the last day our friendship will survive.
    Tomorrow I'll spare a thought and regret this day arrived.

    I wish you well and I hope you're happy,
    But I can't carry on with you being so dappy.

    If your heart should change at all,
    Just be sure to give me a call.
    I will always be here hoping for you
    To be the person you know you're supposed to.
    Life is hard with many changes,
    But it does get easier through the ages.

    So every time you look at a twinkling star,
    Just remember that's me smiling from afar.

  6. 4. Shipwreck

    • By Devavrat Bishwa
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2017

    This is about how people change so quickly, how you trust them but they leave you shattered. This poem is about how your most trusted friend can leave you shattered in pieces and scattered in all emotions.

    A Mighty Storm Made From Anger And Betrayal

    Like a gentle wave, you swayed against my ship.
    With a gentle breeze, you guided me forward.

    As the sun sank into the ocean,
    Light quickly turned into an endless night.

    Your clouds surrounded my night sky,
    Covering all the stars.
    You moved as fast as lightening,
    Yet roared as loud as thunder.

    Your anger, formed as a storm,
    Filled the night sky.
    Your gentle touch turned into piercing thorns.
    You left me on the sand so sore.

    As the moon set upon the horizon,
    Dawn broke and filled the sky.
    You left me on the sandy shore,
    Yet I never asked why.

    I came, I stayed.
    I fought and cried,
    And in the end I was left
    Shipwrecked.

  7. 5. You Think

    Friends are supposed to be trusted. But who knew that some friends just can't be trusted?

    Some Friends Just Can't Be Trusted

    You think you're so good.
    Think you're so perfect in everything.
    You think you can control my mood.
    Please, you must be joking.

    I gave you all my heart.
    I believed in everything you would say.
    I trusted you from the start,
    and everything went your way.

    I guess I made my biggest mistake
    when I became loyal to you.
    You're one of those friends who is fake
    in everything you say and do.

    I thought your kindness would last.
    But now I feel so used.
    Because when I think of the past,
    I thought you'd never give my heart a bruise.

    Why did I ever rely on a word you said?
    What did I ever do to deserve this pain?
    I trusted you, but you hurt me instead,
    And I don't know if I could believe you again.

  8. 6. The Pain Of Friendship

    • By Nicole

    I wrote this for my best friend. She cheated on her boyfriend of four years and then dumped him for another guy who is out of control. What she doesn't know is her ex was about to get her a ring.

    You have been my best friend for the last couple years
    We stood together through the laughter and tears.
    Today the tears are not mutual; they are just in my eyes.
    I can't believe my best friend got caught up in these lies.

    I'll never turn my back on you, our bond is too strong.
    I just wish you would admit what you have done is wrong.
    I try to support you in whatever choices you make,
    But if I supported you in this, I would be making a mistake.

    You have stepped on a lot of true friends by making this choice.
    When I try to talk to you, it seems that I have no voice.
    It hurts so badly when I think of what you have done.
    I want to leave you behind, but I don't have the courage to run.

    You are my best friend, but I don't know you anymore,
    But you have shut everyone out and lost the key to the door.
    You will never understand how much pain you've caused us all,
    But I'm still ready to catch you when you're ready to fall.

    I had a best friend who I used to hang out with all the time; we were so close. I was more like a friend with benefits, used to get to other people. And eventually I couldn't hold on any longer, so I left. And through all the rough, I managed to write my thoughts and feelings on paper and submit them to this lovely website.

    Angry At Friend Poem

    I need to figure myself out
    I need time, I need space

    I hate the silence
    I hate your face

    Look what you did to me
    I'm a monster inside
    Seems like there's no ending
    To let these emotions subside

    I gave it a month, rather two
    But this stuff keeps coming back
    I thought we were through...

    How could you?

  10. 8. He Left Me Wounded

    • By Hannah
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2018

    I had a best friend for about 5 years. His girlfriend told a bunch of lies about me, and he believed her and left me. I tried everything in my power to get him back so I didn't lose him, but in the end I lost him. It broke everything in me because I lost my rock.

    A Best Friend Who Left Me

    He used to make me smile.
    He used to make me laugh.
    All the while,
    He was my other half.

    Soon the months flew by.
    We would hang out till nightfall.
    He was there when I would cry.
    He was there through all my downfalls.

    One thing tore us apart.
    It was like a war inside my heart
    I lost the thing most important to me,
    The only person who held the key.

    The guy who made all my sorrows go away
    Was soon the guy who made all the blue skies grey.
    He left me all alone.
    He broke every bone.

    My heart is broken.
    There are no words that need to be spoken.
    The friendship that was once rooted
    Has now been wounded.

    I walked the halls with my head held down
    Scared to show anyone my frown
    I was left stranded
    And empty-handed.

    I felt as if I couldn't breathe
    Because my best friend had left me
    Over lies that just weren't true.
    Now our friendship is through.

  11. 9. Best Friends?

    • By Alexis
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2010

    I wrote this poem 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.

    Are We Really Friends?

    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 considers 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.

  12. 10. Forgotten

    • By Meghan Harrington
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2013

    I met my best friend in 7th grade. We got really close in the past 3 years. We told each other everything and were sisters. When I went through depression, she was there. Then she started dating a guy. We had a rule that we are more important than a guy. Lately I've been cut out and forgotten. We stopped hanging out and talking. She had him instead. That's when the depression came back. I cried myself to sleep at night. I had no one. I started cutting but recently found poetry as a better outlet.

    Friend Left Me For A Guy Poem

    In the beginning we had a rule.
    Only one rule.
    Easy, right?
    We are more important than a guy.

    But not today.
    Not this time.
    You've broken the rule.
    The one rule.

    At first it was ok.
    We talked about everything.
    I told you my secrets.
    You told me yours.

    Next came the mistrust.
    You told him.
    You told him everything.
    But that's ok, right?

    Then came the abandonment.
    Every weekend was with him.
    Every night was with him.
    Is that still right?

    Finally came the cut off.
    I'm ignored.
    I'm alone.
    But he's special, I get it.

    I was always there.
    I laughed through the good.
    I helped through the bad.
    I was your rock.

    But he's there now, right?
    As long as your happy, right?
    Everything's fine, right?
    We'll get over this, right?

    No.

    I'm alone and scared.
    You're happy and loved.
    But when you look at history,
    You're alone after you're loved.

    Will he always be there?
    Will he love you forever?
    Will he laugh at the good?
    Will he cry at the bad?

    We were sisters.
    Now I barely recognize you.
    I look back, and miss you.
    Do you even remember me?

    Or am I forgotten...

  13. 11. Broken Friendship

    My two best friends decided to end our friendship at the same time. I'd never been so hurt in my life.

    Poem About Losing Two Friends At Once

    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 every day.

    It hurts to lose 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.

  14. 12. You Have Lied To Everyone

    • By Jenna
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2013

    This is a true story of how me and my "BFF" broke up because I found out she was lying to me. She tries to win me back to this very day, but I can't even look at her. I call this poem "You Have Lied To Everyone" because other than me, she lies to the teacher, herself and other people, including my other friends. I can't imagine anyone NOT having someone like that in their life. So remember, if you're one of the people who are like that and you read this poem: stop now.

    Three months ago you said that you would never lie.
    A week ago we left each other, and yet still you try
    To mend the tear. You lied to him, you lied to me.
    And only now, I can see
    That you never meant those things you said.
    So therefore you lied to me.

    The day we met was one year ago.
    I left, and only now I'm glad I had to go.
    My mother said you cannot be believed.
    I can't believe for three months you had me deceived.
    You say you're sorry, but it's too late.
    Your awful lies and actions have paved your fate.

    I wouldn't be surprised if 20 years from now,
    You'd be put in jail, and you're asking, "How?"
    And if I could, I'd walk right in
    And give the answer, "It's the penalty of your sin."
    You'd look up at me, with a sad and pitiful look.
    But I wouldn't pay you one bit of attention,
    You sneaky LYING crook.

    You've lied to everyone, me and her.
    You even lied to yourself, a price of the lure
    And if you had the chance, would you take that back?
    And even though you think you've won,
    You have lied to everyone.

  15. 13. Because I Needed A Friend

    • By Elizabeth Mcmillien

    This poem was written for a friend. She was married and going through a hard time in her marriage. One night she ran into a close male friend. They had coffee together and drove around talking for hours. They pulled over to talk and one thing led to another and they both ended up cheating on their spouses. She felt really bad and just wanted to continue being friends, but the friendship was ruined, and it broke her heart. I wrote this poem for her based on the feelings she expressed to me.

    Poem About Making A Mistake

    I called you late last night
    because I needed a friend.
    But you, of course, didn't answer.
    I guess you want to pretend

    That our friendship doesn't matter,
    that we never should have met.
    Our time to you meant nothing,
    but I never will forget.

    I know mistakes were made;
    they came from either side.
    But you won't even talk to me,
    and I feel like I have died.

    Why can't we just move on
    and forget about that night?
    I should have known that this would happen;
    we both knew it wasn't right.

    I thought I knew what I was doing.
    I wouldn't involve my heart.
    I knew exactly what I wanted
    right from the very start.

    And now I just want to say
    how sorry I really am.
    I didn't mean for this to happen.
    I do, but you don't give a damn.

    This may sound like a break up. However, losing a very close friend is sometimes worse than a breakup.

    Someone you truly thought would be there no matter what. Never thought they would let you down as you fall...

    Poem About A Scared Heart

    You left me a scar
    A scar that will never fade
    Deep inside me
    You left your mark

    I wasn't strong enough to cry
    But I was too weak to smile
    I couldn't reach for your hand
    When you had your back turned on me

    I had too much pride to hide from you
    But didn't have enough courage to run to you
    I couldn't speak up to your face
    When you were no longer around

    You left me a scar
    A scar that will never heal
    Too deep inside me
    You stabbed my heart
    It hurts as I think
    And it bleeds as I care

    I was too young to accept
    But I was too old to ignore
    I couldn't fix this problem
    When I was the only one that cared

    It hurts as I think
    And it bleeds as I care

    I was too naive to trust
    But I'm too wise to continue

    A poem asking if a friend or family member will be there for you.

    When I'm crying and you see tears running down my face,
    will you be there?
    When I'm in my deepest fear,
    will you be there?
    When I face my darkest hour,
    will you be there?
    Will you help when I'm in trouble?
    Will you watch as I weep?
    I have one other question...
    when you have your head hanging down,
    will it be me that you seek?
    I know it will be.
    So when I hate myself and want to throw in the bag,
    will you be there with open arms?

    Lies and deceptions, two bad surroundings

    I see no point, I see no end
    Those are your enemies, who you think are friends.

    You see and hear it, find it hard to believe
    They don't want any good, but only to deceive

    You don't know who to trust, everyone's a target
    The things they'll do so hard to forget

    Deceit and deception, over and over
    The chances of good friend, like four leaf clovers

    They'll think you don't know or won't find out
    But surely you do so without a doubt

    The thing that's done determines your fate
    makes choices for the best, better soon than late

    Lies spread like a diseased infection
    Life's just full of deceit and deception

  19. 17. Friends That Let You Down

    • By Terrie Wilson
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2010

    I have written this after 4 women who I thought were my best friends let me down and broke my heart. It is my way of coping with the rejection and learning to live without them.

    Poem About Feeling Abandoned By Friends

    These so called friends have let me down
    And made me feel as though I would drown
    My heart was broken, like a death to grieve,
    These friends of mine set out to deceive.
    We had been friends for many years,
    With much laughter, fun and tears,
    We'd had good times, but that was the past,
    Like many things, they did not last.

    They did not invite me,
    The hurt has been caused,
    They did not ring or call,
    I think that just about says it all.
    In my awful dark despair,
    I really thought they would care,
    A note, a card, or even some flowers,
    But they were too mean to even use these powers.

    They left me crying and so upset,
    How could they, and yet,
    "I'm alright" they probably said,
    We don't care, we'll go ahead,
    They carried on, it did not matter,
    They all went out for chatter,
    No doubt to complain, stir and moan,
    But they had left me all alone.

    When days were darkest and self-esteem so low,
    Calls to Samaritans said it all,
    They came through with flying colours,
    These friends did not, that's all that matters.
    The pain they caused will not go away,
    It cuts deep and strong to this day,
    To put the phone down on me, screaming abuse,
    To lie and try to cover up, Oh God, this is so obtuse.

    I did not think I needed to explain,
    But my questioning why? fell in vain,
    They tried to say I was overreacting,
    They were going to invite me but did not exactly!
    How can people be so mean?
    When I was always there so keen,
    They did not deserve me as a friend,
    I finally realized this in the end.

    No peace in their lives will they ever find,
    They let a friend down badly, not kind!
    They complained and moaned about each other,
    This I will not miss, and don't want the bother.
    I am better, kinder, than they will ever be,
    Love, respect they no longer have for me,
    To me they are forever gone,
    And in my life they no longer belong.
    A dignified silence is all that remains,
    I'm free now from all the pain,
    I realize now they were not real friends,
    But used me for their own selfish ends.
    I really think they will miss me,
    But I've left them alone, and let it be,
    I miss them not; it turns out in the end,
    Be content with yourself, why defend?

    Stand tall, be proud, have peace within.
    It is only then you can begin
    To be content with the way you are.
    Have faith in yourself, you're a shining star.
    Do not let friends put you down,
    Destroy your love; stamp it into the ground,
    Do not put up with their moans and groans,
    Settle this knowledge into your bones.

    I am happy now and glad of heart,
    That these friends and I are apart.
    I've moved on now and left them behind,
    To each other they will never be kind.
    To the rest of my life new friends have come,
    Ones that you can really depend and rely on,
    So take heed from my awful quest,
    And remember, NEW friends really can be BEST.

    This poem is dedicated to Michelle Simpson, my best and worst friend!

    Poem About Friendship Changing

    We said we would be friends till the end.
    You said you would always be my friend.
    You stabbed be in the back.
    Now what we had we can't get back.
    I see you every day,
    But I still feel the need to pray.
    I miss you more and more,
    But it can never be like before.
    I will love you forever,
    But you will never.
    I guess you're not the same any more,
    But what happened to before?
    Did you ever really care?
    Did you ever really dare?
    You thought it was a game,
    So with you lies the blame.

  21. 19. Other Side

    • By Alejandra
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2010

    I wrote this poem not quite sure if I could ever trust anyone in life.

    Poem About Lying Friend

    I thought I could trust you
    when I told you what I felt.
    My secrets I left in your hand .
    If I went to sleep late last night, you knew.
    If I had a date to go to,
    you would beg me to stay.
    I could not lie to you, for you were my best friend,
    until I met your other side.
    Don't deny anything to me 'cause all you say is a lie.
    You told me I was beautiful, and for the first time I believed it,
    but I was wrong, or maybe I can trust you.
    I am confused, what should I do?
    Should I trust you or not?
    You tell me it's okay,
    that my secrets are safe with you,
    but what if you say something or maybe your other side does.
    I don't want to meet it, but I think I already have.
    When you promised me your friendship
    and that it will always last, but you lied .
    Well, goodbye to you and your so called other side.

  22. 20. Friend Shows Their True Colors

    This poem was written during a time in my life where I was faced with the reality that people are not who the seem to be. I have always tried to take people at face value but have realized that in most circumstances people have underlining meanings for the words and actions that they use. Specifically, this poem reflects a particular friend I had who used me to get something (someone) they wanted and caused a lot of heartache for me. After the situation was cleared, he tried to mend the friendship and, of course, was unsuccessful.

    The blood was shed
    It will never be the same
    Feel the intruding lead
    That hangs my head in pain

    The drainage not on my hands
    But flows down my back
    It was only in the sands
    Where you planned your attack

    Executed without flaws
    With no issue at hand
    You dug deep with your claws
    Into a faceless land

    Your face full of lies
    When you greet me at that place
    I see through your disguise
    And reject your embrace

    The wound you try to heal
    Is now a gaping maw
    Your words can never conceal
    The true colors I saw
