Friend

Friend
I once believed I meant that to you
But now, here I am
Alone
You laughed and teased
With all those worldly ones
You also called friends
As you left me to myself
No one bothered to warm the seat
Next to me
And so it remained
Empty
And me
Alone
I watch the rain slide down the window
Two droplets racing against the other
And remember
How you would ask me to cover for you
So you would not get caught
Or
How you would pay me no mind
Because I just was not someone to
Be bothered with
Or
How you would ask all sorts of favors from me
Because the odds were not
In your favor
Am I no more than a convenience
To you?
I began to doubt
Because of you
I am afraid to trust
And to believe
When others would smile at me
And tell me
"You are my
Friend."

    I just wrote about something like this myself. I know how this feels. It sucks. But, at least you know who you don't need in your life. Nicely expressed here.
