Not poetry, but...

maybe we'll call this poeterri...

Disclaimer: Do Not Take This Personally - it's not intended for you!

You used to be a friend of mine.
We'd talk and laugh and dream
about the perfect man, the ideal job,
the grown-ups we were going to be.

I attended your wedding and you were at mine;
True friends we would remain, it seemed
but gradually, over time
our calls grew few and far between.

You see, my friend, there's more to this
than might at first have met the eye.
Between the good times came the bad
and I, too young, could not see you were lying
to me, misleading me;

Though at the time our bond was such
that I forgave the breach of trust.

But trust is such a fragile thing
and as the years went by I found
the hurt began to settle in
my heart and in my mind.

So now the time has come for me
to move along and cut the ties
that all this time have held me back
and brought me down and made me cry.

For though it makes me sad to say
these words, I say them anyway;
Because I can't forget the lie
Goodbye old friend,
goodbye.



Now... if you haven't yet had enough of my drivel, I've also posted something new(-ish) on terristories.

Undr - Aw thanks :-) The stories I write are normally rather, uh, girly though so... ah well, read it anyway... although you're undr no obligation to do so. Promise!

Ben - I would never presume to call anything I write 'poetry'... but if you like it, phrases like "Pure Genius" are also acceptable ;-)
