No Friend

I found in you the mother I 
never had.
You were the only one there 
when I lost my dad.
Always there when I needed 
Not far when I wanted you too.
It was from you that I got 
courage when I had none.
It was you who pushed back 
my tears and let me have fun.
Twenty four seven you were 
with me.
Happy or sad you just let me 
But in reality, you were really 
no friend.
And I face six years of running, 
it's got to end.
I must push you out and far, far 
I can no longer rely on you~not 
even one more day.
Back to the light, the real world 
I walk. 
All the years of avoided 
emotions to deal with in bulk. 
You're not my family! You're 
the enemy! No friend!
You took six years and all it 
contained without amend!
You were all consuming~the 
loyalist I've ever seen. 
But go far away, get out of me!
