After All l Didn´t Know You

How Could I Be So Naive ? I Really Didn´t Know You.

To think that through it all.

l didn´t know you.!

How could l mistake the kindness?

How could l know that it was fake?

l didn´t know you.


l thought we had a solid bond

It was real to me...

How could l know your smile was fake?

Am l so naive?....for sure

l didn´t know you.


No wonder now, l keep a fence,

A wall around myself

A barrier twixt me and others

afraid of closeness, as before

before we met and I knew the score

Why would l want to make new friends?

New place-- new people...--- they could be you........

And l didn´t know you. However much I thought I did

I didn´t know you


How sad for me. How sad for you!!!

You cannot be a friend. You are not real.

l have ONE FRIEND. l cherish her.

But you? l didn´t know you,

Yo Dim! You sneaked one in on me! This is really beautifully written. It's part of life that we've known too well. Life is so short. Let's love each other when we can. God bless you Dim!

Hi DF, lovely and sad for those who cannot give as well as receive. A good lesson for this season. I am encouraging myself to not let the miserly nature of others define how I give of myself. The problem with walls is they tend to keep us in more than others out. I say the heck with them. If we just let our natural giving nature be like a spring that is perennially replenished regardless of the nature of others, we lose nothing and karma will take care of everyone else. Cheers. =:)

Beautiful, sad, and... strong. I too had a "pretend friend" in my life, who's perpetual fakeness hurt me deeply in the long run.

Thank you for sharing this bit of your personal humanity with all the rest of us.

Well done and appreciated!

I had a "best friend". Friends since middle school. I supported him when his parents didn't. Loved him no matter what. Confided in him and then he turned and judged me. Then he chose a relationship over our friendship. His loss. Sad to say but I will never forgive him.
