The affliction of a wound
From a stranger
Is disheartening
From an enemy
Stings
From a brother
Dishonest
From a friend

Cruel

Open rebuke
Is better
Than secret
Wrath
Critic
Lies

Anger is
Outrageous
It wasn’t my
Fault
I expected this
I knew they weren’t true
Friends
Deep down somewhere

Deep
Deep
Deep
Down….

Somewhere

I wrote this after I found out that the girl I'd known and loved since we were toddlers had been talking behind my back and telling my secrets to other people for a couple years. It really hurt me, and this poem explains how I felt at the time.

Awww. That was so sad. :(

The writing's amazing, as usual, though.

Yeah, saddly. I hope things get better for you soon! My life has, though it was a very hard time also.

It's a hard time for me right now. A lot of different things have been... bring me down, everything with my friends doesn't help either. I have little to no support with them. I don't know what to say. I think it is human -- we are sinful. I think people can do or say whatever they want to others. I think they should never leave someone just because... You know?

That's terrible, I'm so sorry. People shouldn't be able to do stuff like that.

That's sad when you can't trust anyone anymore. I know how you feel.

I also feel this pain. I never knew exactly who they were inside. They left me for another group of girls. I just get to sit around and watch.
