Why you gotta be so mean?
I said the truth got stabbed in the back
This friendship wasn’t meant to
Why you gotta be so mean?
You said you wanted to get out
Getting out isn’t what you did
You stayed
Replenishing the fuel
Creating a fire
Why you gotta be so mean?
I found something better
You couldn’t accept
I said the truth
Got stabbed in the back
Why you gotta be so mean?
I can’t be happy
Why is that
All you want to see
Is me depressed
Why you gotta be so mean?
I wish those chapters could be
They can’t
I must persevere

The author's comments:
This is based on an actual event that happened in my life. It was hard to write because of some memories. It's a free verse poem, but there's a little repetition. The outline of my poem represent a broken piece of glass, like a broken relationship. I hope you enjoy it!
