To you who walked away from my life
who simply stop calling and never said goodbye.
You know who you are!
Once we were close, two peas in a pod
we shared, we did,
we laughed, we cried...
I don't feel I faltered, while you led me down at times.
You hurt me, didn't keep your word,
left me more than once in perilous situations
-while you'd laughed and bragged about, at work.
I was young, naive, passive, never called you out on it.
I felt your judgments, your jealousy...
Don't know why? You were the pretty one,
the shining one, the smart one, the social one...
I looked up in admiration.
But as I've broken from my shell and
learned to differentiate from real vs feign,
matured to realize we often outgrow friends.
I am now grateful that you left.
You always wanted to find love and be loved.
Something I found and still enjoy.
Perhaps, that was the thorn
-that pierced your heart?
My peace, my love, my joy.
Somethings are better left alone.
This person lies and tells others that she calls and I never answer? At this point I don't want to renew contact with such a heart.
