Friends forever side by side.
Who knew a two letter phrase could be such a lie.
Who knew my best friends would be the ones to make me cry.
I needed you, you needed me.
I never realized how twisted people’s words can be.

You left me out, you didn’t care.
You just knew that I would always be there.
Sobbing, shaking, my face stained with tears.
Calling for help, no one hears.

School tomorrow will be just the same.
No one will know that something has changed.
My smile is in place
Illuminating my face just like a candle can light up a space

It’s a mask I wear
But you won’t notice.
You don’t care.
Beside me where I sit is just another empty chair.
