Are You Even a 'Friend'?

I remember...
The day you broke my faith
The day you betrayed me for your own greed
The day I stopped in believing in the sacred word

I remember...
The time you ignored me
The time you smeared myself with libels
The time I saw your true self, the dark you

I wonder...
Whether you are an angel as you told me once
Whether you are my shield and sword at the same time
Whether you really supports me as a friend

I wonder...
Whether our promises were all lies
Whether all the smiles you gave me once were real
Whether you really told me the truth or not

I'm thinking...
Do you really like me as a friend, not a tool?
Do you know how much I've suffering?
Do you realize the trust I have in you?

I'm thinking...
Are you even aware of the meaning of 'Friend'?
Are you even cognizant of the word 'Friend'?
Are you even a 'Friend'?

    Thank you for all the comments... I really appreciate it. Sorry it took me so long to say this. I'm still unfamiliar with the site. I'm still studying as well, which means I have little time to check the site. Once again, thank you very much :')

    wow,, very strong questions ... these ponderous thoughts seem pretty personal and it's a loss for your friend..P.D.

    If you are asking these questions, you probably don't have a friend in this person. Friends stand beside one--a support in good times and bad. Heartfelt poem. Welcome to Poetry Soup! I hope you enjoy your time spent with us. Best wishes with your writing. Karen

    Great write expressing what so many face today..I had a dear old pastor to tell me one time that things for using and people are for loving...That one statement has helped me more than what great writers have said...Keep the creative pen flowing..Sara
