Darkness, shadows
They've never been his foes
Lurking around as he goes
Even to his death it follows

What's that thing with no nose?
Nobody ever knows
But only to him it ever bows
To others it shrieks and claws

Drowning alone in his sorrows
And all his miseries and woes
Waiting silently for tomorrows
As older and older time grows

He wanted nothing of those
Poisonous as black widows
Repulsing all that knows
Leaving him alone and lost

It wasn't darkness he chose
Looking at a candle that glows
It just felt like blows
And his heart hollows

He tried putting on shows
But they never lasted long
He ends up standing alone
Wrapped in ashes and smokes

One day he's had enough
And he shut his door close
From his one, loyal ghost
Till at some point it finally goes

That was when time froze
And when he finally knows
That a shining star only glows
Inside the deepest, darkest jaws

Oh, the insults he throws
Not to his woes and foes
But to those loyal as dogs
How he regrets them most!

But one thing he can't oppose
The line of present he can't cross

No touchy
Don't touch
Will bite
Has claws
Not afraid to use them
Nor my fangs
For I am cat.

I just
Want climb
on the roof
And scream and
Tear my clothes
And skin off in

an honest enemy is always better
than a friend who lies.
pay less attention to what people say
and more attention to what they do.
their actions will show you the truth.
Niki Gray Aug 19
Someone did you wrong,
like the lyrics to a country song.
Someone hardened your heart,
broken inside and torn apart.

Someone betrayed your trust,
what you thought was love to him was lust.
Someone stole your pureness,
leaving you feeling alone and powerless.

To get your power back,
allow your heart to get back on track.
Don't wait for the apology he won't give,
liberate yourself by learning to forgive.
I am forever thankful and blessed to have a wonderful husband and 2 beautiful children.  Thank you to my family and friends.  Special shout out to Todd (Happy B-day Bro), Christian, Sheela and Courtney.  Thank all of you for your love and support.  All glory to God.

they say that "a good friend feels good for the soul but a fake friend is a toxic drain"
i had the faith to say
that my best friend was loyal,
that my best friend was trustworthy,
that my best friend had a pure heart and soul,
that my best friend would never talk about me behind my back.
i believed that i could trust you with anything
yet, i had been played.
little did i know that
my life was wrapped in a **** lie.

we went from talking
until 2 am,
to 2 hours a day,
to 2 minutes a day,
to 2 days ago,
to not speaking at all.
my heart aches to watch my you leave me so suddenly
however, they say that
everything happens for a reason.
my mind tells me one thing but my heart tells me another;
either i try to regain our friendship and get hurt again
or completely remove you from my life.
one day i miss you dearly,
another day i have nothing but hatred towards you.

at the end of the day,
you had betrayed me.
you led me into a revolving door of disloyalty and constant lies
where i was trapped.
nobody hurt me the way that you hurt me.
i constantly ponder to myself..
was i lying to myself that we were true friends just to sense happiness?
i would sit and smile,
pretending that everything was okay
but eventually i revealed what was really underneath
my fake smile.
you left me crying myself to sleep at night.
i had to lie in my bed,
and sob quietly
so no one could hear me.
then the next day,
i acted like i was completely okay.
two years of our friendship and time thrown in the garbage...

"the one i thought i trusted
ended up being the one who stabbed me in the back,
lied and became that person who they said they wouldn't be.
i've been so different and i've been at my worst
because I've had people use me,
lie to me,
stab me in the back,
and put me down to the dumps"
surprisingly, you were the one who quoted this.
you were the one who truly left me hanging
and put me down.
i feel so stupid because i let my naive and innocent side of myself take over me.
my introverted self gave you the freedom to do whatever you wanted with my life.
i was willing to do anything for you,
as long as i pleased you.
i went too far where i let you manipulate me
as if i were your puppet
where you easily controlled me through your fingertips.

every friend i made,
every person i spoke to,
every person i sat with,
whatever i posted on social media,
was according to your will and orders.
you taught me a life lesson:
i learnt that no one could
ever manoeuvre me the way that you did.
from my number one to the one i can't even look at.
our friendship slipped out of our fingers
all due to betrayal...

I swear I never seen an enemy
Because many friends claim their true
With their hands covered in my blood
I swear yu think I did it too
The smile of friend
Who swore they always there
And a mother saying baby
Be careful who you trust
“It hurt. It hurt even more because you were close to me. It hurt because I cared about what you thought and said. You mattered to me, and that created a soft spot for you. But you left me. You betrayed me. You lied with the empty words. And you pushed me every time I came close with an act of care.
Now you say I am cold and emotionally distant. But that’s what I had to do to avoid being crippled by the emotional and mental wounds and scars, for I had enough. I am not a fool anymore; I know how this goes. Because every time I open up, all it does is hurt. So now every time you hurt me, the less I cry. Every time you leave me, the quicker these tears dry. And every time you walk out, the less I love you. Because every time it happens, the less you matter to me. So I am not going to let you close to me, even though you mean the most to me and I mean the most to you; in case you leave me in the dirt. Because the truth is baby, I am just protecting my innocence, heart, mind and soul now.”

be careful
some friends and some siblings, some parents wear masks,
once seen without their disguise
you‘ll be betrayed
and sit at your desk
with that flask
once again
