Don't Pretend to Be a Friend

Updated on January 5, 2018

I will seek no more,

Because its not there to be found,

Trying becomes such a chore,

My head in the clouds my feet on the ground.

When I look I fail to see,

My eyes become misty with pain,

The world is the same but different to me,

While the inglorious hide in their shame,

I watch the stars race across the sky,

And the clouds deposit their morning dew,

It becomes monotonous always having to try,

Pretending every day is brand new,

It seems like your fading toward another notion,

Your mind just likes to play tricks,

It's like when your floating upon the ocean,

And your grasp upon reality slips.

Don't look at me your sorrowful gaze torments,

The truth in your eye the spit on your tongue,

Your actions betray what your feelings resents,

And the journey you take turns out wrong.

You look as though you know me,

But I know that just is a lie,

That look in your eye isn't all that I see,

When you so purposely walk by.

I've been there watching you stumble,

I've caught you when you've fell down,

Your not the only one who might just tumble,

Like when it's me I just look like a clown.

So don't act like your a loyal friend,

And about me to other's you talk,

When I am someone whom you can depend,

But when it's me your likely to just walk.

I see you play your silly games,

Everything seems so pretence,

Those who are pure in heart you just call names,

Behind their backs you just resents.

Why do you pretend not to notice me,

All I want is to see you just smile,

Is it because I could never expect to be,

Someone you'd notice just for a while.

A good heart is hard to find,

Yet selfish hearts heart's outnumber the few,

It's like broken promises are so unkind,

Even when they were made might have been true.

    I had this experience a couple weeks ago. Amusingly, I knew she was doing it and since I was walking right by her, I said "hi," anyway. She had an awkward response and talked to me but was short about it.

    The funniest part: The last time I saw her she was very nice and we were quite friendly. I have no idea why she was so weird about running into each other. Maybe I said something on Facebook that offended her. Perhaps I should unfriend her and save us both some trouble, but I also find it comical.

    Thank you I appreciate your comment, unfortunately I seem to attract negative people hence that's why my poetry is so dark, but I live in hope....

    Can so totally relate. There's nothing more hurtful than to have others we believe we can trust betray that trust. Nicely done.
