Fake Friends

They come and go
Only take and never give
Only pretend to be someone loveable
Always turning out to be someone detestable
Always saying you can trust them
Always saying they will never leave you
Always leaving when things get too hard
Only there for the good things
Only pretending to like you
Faking to be your friend
Stabbing you behind your back
Leaning on you with their problems
Never wanting to hear yours
Only there for a brief time
Never knowing how they hurt you when they leave
Never telling the truth
Making the truth sting more
Like lemon into freshly cut wounds
Only there for interest
Not for friendship
Always leaving with a part of you
Never to give back
These selfish creatures don’t know what they leave behind
If they looked
They will see all the scars my heart has
How much my tears leaked
How my security is broken and shaken
How my trust for others diminished
They will see a little girl curling inside
Trying to hide from the pain they have inflicted
