http://UNFRIENDLY FRIENDS, A POEM BY IMMACULATE AND FRANK O.
Like normal friends,
People who have trust and love for each other
Day and night we walk along
Our hearts beat with ease
We played in a particular order.
Like siblings, we did a lot together
Never failed to wipe away tears
And replace it with laughter
There was no room for pain
We took every step thinking of each other’s gain.
I trusted them,
cheerfully ceased their troubles,
tame their anger and heard their plea
Just like I knew they would do for me
If ever I was down.
Their words were written, so thoughtful
but their pretence became crystals clear
and their love a fake lie
I was buried in doubt.
I have long been deceived.
I was a meek lamb
Shameful, I was made a fool
Blinded by their act of pretence
they left, I stayed waiting for nothing
Like I was trapped in a brainwashed pool.
I should have known,
Their minds were dirty and poisoned.
So dirty, they cut me down like a tree
That’s just who they are
Covered in a clothing they don’t deserve.
Their love wasn’t real,
I have been deceived all these while
I was used, both body and soul
For what purpose, I am yet to file.
famished of friendship.
You never make it past them
Just within their reach
To be pulled in or out, when they so please
With the belief that they have you at heart
Be ready to get destroyed
All these while with them
I have learnt a lot
their support are flies, they are never constant
Making unsure promises
They destroyed the trust I took long to build.
They are perfect judges,
Some loaves of convincing words in hand,
they judge you with poor ratings
While my body sips pain daily
Strolling in a confused land.
They have created a mark, I won’t forget
I never knew my heart was fragile
I beseech you, call me not again
You played with my feelings
For the cup of agony is full.
