"Life is way too short to keep
friends that break your heart. "
Quote _by Constance
A fig leaf coverup,
a friendship that was just a figment;
a charade with an ultimate breakup,
for it was a friendship with no pigment.
Evil hidden by a thick cloak,
your camouflage of friendship- I now revoke;
your false mask of kindness has been broke.
Oh, I was blind,
as your charade into my life twined;
you played with my accepting mind.
Now, your ugly true colors are revealed- and I cleanup,
I pulled back this fig leaf figment;
and all tendrils of fake friendship- I choke,
in my life you are now just a distasteful segment.
