A Poem by Phoebe Woode

Pandora’s box


My best friend had my back,

Since freshman year

I had no doubt about it.


She had my back for so long

It was easier for her to stick

the knives in it- neatly.

She obviously doesn't know that I know

That she doesn’t know that I know.


But the smell of betrayal is potent than blood.

I am going to confront her,

Soon enough

No shoes or  earnings are going to come off.

Just the knives on my back.


It is going to be a silent confrontation.


I prepared myself to dismiss any more lies,

She had already had memorized.

I knew all the alliances she had made

Beforehand.

But, nothing prepared me for what happened next.

If you're not sure how you feel about it, how can we be? It's the art of betrayal and the ticking moments of a vendetta...no one is ever sure about any of it.

It's a good read Phoebe. Nice poem, even though it feels more like a lyrical tale than anything else. But a good one nevertheless.

This writing was quite experimental, so my emotions were somewhat mixed.

I like that the poem is left on a kind of cliffhanger, it's very raw. Good job.
