Poisoned Friends

Poisoned Friends

A Poem by Lavi

Sometimes friends aren't what we need.

Forgive me for lacking rhymes
I had a thought I couldn't scream
And decided I'll say it here
Because where else can I go?

Turning to my so-called friends leaves me numb
Betrayed and angry for being used
Couldn't deal with my pain
So they tried to hook me on drugs

Didn't I tell them what they did to my father?
Didn't I tell them I just needed to breathe?
Why is it when I needed them I ended up used?
Taken along like some puppy to train

I'm angry and feeling lost and betrayed
So upset I can't even make my own words rhyme
Wish they'd knew how easy it is to break
People who reach out at their most vulnerable state

I'm tired of being in a one-sided relationship
Tired of playing this game for you
Where you take me along on the next adventure
Only for me to drag you back home under influence

So it's safe for me to say that when you left
I didn't look back

I've been writing a long time, since early childhood but didn't find my passion for writing my own poetry until I was 13 or 14 while going through hardship. Poetry has been my outlet and one of the fe.. more..
