Best Friends

We went from best friends to not talking
in an instant.
That boy told me lies.
He told me what you were saying to everyone.
It wasn't true.
I tried to talk to you,
to understand what it was you had supposedly been saying,
but all I got was hatred.
The love between us was gone.
Best friends.
I don't understand how you could possibly be so mad at me,
for a simple question,
I wanted to understand,
so I asked,
the answer I got was goodbye.
I hate you.
Leave me alone.
Best friends?
I thought I knew you,
the boy that I loved,
he's in there somewhere,
but not for me.
For someone else you deemed worthy.
Friendship means nothing.
I lost my best friend,
because of a misunderstanding,
because of a rumor.
Why? Because that boy lied.
The boy that told me all the things you told him,
or so he said.
But you didn't.
And now you hate me.
I'm sorry for trying to understand,
what was happening.
I could not comprehend what he was saying,
that my best friend was spreading such a thing,
like wildfire.
You didn't.
But he said you did.
And now my best friend refuses to look at me.
Because of that boy.
The one with the big mouth.
I hate him,
he tore us apart.
Me and my best friend?
No more.

I enjoyed reading it. I'm seeming to notice that in your poems you are venting in some way wether good or bad. In this one bad. BUT it was very enjoyable.

It seems a little run-on-y. Like you were rambling, maybe? Venting? You can feel the emotion in it though, and it has good flow. I think with a little bit of tweaking, this would be really good[:

I like the flow but I don't really get where you're going with this? :/

Is it about a person who ruined your relationship with this other boy?
