False Faces

Beware of

False faces

One can

Become two

You'll find

Yourself lost

In between

The two

To me you show

Used to be one

Until things


Hatefulness overtook

Friendship slipped


Where did your

Vengence come from

Lies that spread

Loathing jealousy

That took over you

You wore two masks

That I didn't see until


Your tail curled

In your catty ways

Why did it have to be

This way

Your real fangs showed

And I had to leave you

I really don't like being around negative people. Especially people who are jealous and want to tear you down or fake people who pretend to be your friend. I've noticed it's hard to find good friends sometimes. Women in general can be catty and competitive. I've always had problems with girlfriends in my life. I think I have only a handful of women friends that I can trust and haven't tried to sabotage the relationship in some way. It's a sad thing. When you're a little girl you think you're friends will be around forever. The older you get people start changing and can either turn on you or in some way end up not being the person you thought they were. I miss some of the people who I thought were something special but ended up being anything but. I also learned that you need to drop those people right away who aren't doing you any good because they can end up tearing you apart.

      carolinemd21, Perfectly expressed in your inimitable style!

      I agree about negative people, and I've been around my share of women who spew actual platitudes out of their mouths about "women are so nurturing" but they're sharpening their tongues and wreaking as much devastation as possible behind the scenes. They feel very powerful in their cowardly underhandedness. My mother once commented to me about some troublemakers who "think nothing of ruining a reputation." I'd have to change those wise words to they think "everything" about ruining reputations because that is what they do and that is who they are. I try to keep as much distance as possible between me and them --- not always easy.

      It's horrible when that mask slips, isn't it? Quite disheartening, but a reminder to cherish true blues.

      Kind regards, Stessily

      You put it well Caroline. It's a great topic if you notice I trod mighty careful around it , but depending on who you are , in friendship , discovering the truth yourself, not through hear say . It hurts.

      But you will be fine.

      Exactly right, and one feels so naive because people do change if you put them in different situations. Unfortunately life is not black or white. Who you thought were your best friends might become your worst enemies, and had only wanted certain things from you at a particular time. Cheers, nicely put. Voted Up
