Failed Friendship

You hurt me.
I do have feelings.
And I know friendships are never a guarantee,
but you didn’t even think twice about leaving.
We shared so many memories together.
You were someone I related to.
But I guess being best friends forever
never meant anything to you.
I wish I had seen
what you were truly like, sooner.
That you’d never choose me if it was between
myself and someone higher up on the social ladder.
Why wasn’t I good enough?
Was it because I couldn’t keep up with the latest trends?
I don’t know because instead of talking, you snuff
me as if we weren’t even best friends.
I feel stupid and naive,
when thinking about everything.
But most of all, I feel incomplete
because I have not started healing.
Because I never got my closure.
Because you didn’t talk to me.
I try to keep my composure,
So maybe you can’t see
That I am angry.
We were best friends for so long,
And frankly,
You led me on.
We were not in a relationship,
But I wish you had broken up with me
because we were in a long-term friendship.
and I could have gotten the closure I need.
Because now I am stuck hating you.
Hate is a strong word,
so I only use it when I have to.
And when it comes to you, it’s use is required.
All that being said,
I miss you, nonetheless.
When I look ahead,
I think that I will oppress
those feelings
because it will sink in that you hurt me.
I do have feelings.
And I know that friendships are never a guarantee.
But at least I thought twice about leaving.
