Remember when you?

Used my truth against me

The truth was the pain

The other half made me seem insane

I never told anyone

How I felt

When I had to apologize

Just to prove my love

I’ll be good

I’ll do what you say I should

Thought you’re one of the few

So, I blindly trusted you

How you played me

Your words bring out the worst in me

My perfect life scenario

was not a lie

but a half truth

What was told

What was left unsaid

Is what you never cared to know

‘‘Shame on you

How low can you go?”

People like you

Will say anything to let you know

They are in control

They’re better than you

cause’ they are superior than you

after I've experienced, and witnessed

Even If I take the blame

You’ll never take responsibility

For what was done to me

I can pretend

But you will never earn my respect again

I’ve stared in the eyes of a devil

She wore white;a pure evil

someone with an undeserved reputation

privileged life 

a vicious tongue

 cruelest of all

desire power over the vulnerable

It’s me! It has to be!!

Is what I had to repeat just to get through

use the pain

 Helping me to create a hell within my own mind

Half-truth makes you look insane

My pain wasn’t a game

But they don’t know

They never will

As time passes by

I’ve learnt that half-truth is 

A Million times dangerous

Than a lie!

Sadness is when they believe their own lies- a fools a fool no matter the name- who’s fooling who in the end they only fool themselves- have strength in knowing karma is a b***h that returns to bite you and hard- wonderfully written- joy comes in the morning🌹

I don't like to recommend a dramatic change, but your title would be good if it included the word "half-truths" -- since this idea, to me, is the most powerful point that you make in this message. We kick ourselves, as you're doing here, for believing someone who is not being a true friend, but these half-truths are what draw us in & coax us to embellish what we choose to believe about the situation. Your writing is like moaning regret, powerful, reflecting the noise that often drones in our heads from stupid choices (((HUGS))) fondly, Margie

Interesting revelation. Half-truths that are told often hide a deeper agenda of the person we're dealing with. We live with the fact that people of this merit exists, but we can always work around them and handle ourselves accordingly. Excellent work as always. Take care and keep writing. :)

The pain of this poem grabs you immediately. I really feel that a artist is at their best when they express their inner self and feelings. I hope this was a cathartic poem for you. Pain can fester in the soul of us who have been mentally abused. Keep writing and expressing your truth!

This is an amazing poem, one that actually made me think of my own past relationships that have warped me nearly into a cynic. minus a couple of punctuation questions that came to mind (the question mark on the first line), I thought the poem was emotional and connective you did a great job. keep writing Zaisham

For some personal reason I feel your pain and frustration that so vividly you wrote! There are " friendships " that just use us for sheer thrill they get by playing with our emotions. It is not easy to untangle these friendships, the best we can do after realizing the fact, is slowly distancing would be the wisest thing. i liked your writing very much. All the best.
