Poor Victim

Those words,
Those lies.
Those times
Of cheating and stealing.
Those smiles,
Those laughs.
Those up-lifting
Moments when you made me feel like I was someone.

You spoke words of encouragement and told me that we were meant for forever.
You lied to everyone, but mostly, to me.
You cheated me out of having other people to call out to or come close to.
You cheated me out of everything.
You stole my heart, my trust, and my love - and a part of me will always be like lost puzzle pieces you stole from me because you will always - somehow - have those stolen pieces of me.
And you smiled at me when things were going the way you wanted.
You laughed and I laughed when someone would do something ridiculous, when they would look like a fool.
But now you laugh and she laughs when I do something ridiculous, when I look like the fool.
You made me feel close and loved, but when you denied our friendship, I knew then, that I was just your poor victim.

This is great! Nobody should treat other people that way and you shouldnt have had to go through what you did to get a wonderful piece of writing.
