Time To Say Goodbye. . .

I’m done here
This is “the end”
You always told me to have no fear
Guess I messed up on that trend

Can’t take it anymore
I thought you were my friend
So much fun and laughs galore
Yet I can only see the end

You sit below me
Eyes drawn regretfully
You ask for mercy
Yet I can’t bring myself to agree

You thought that I would
Put up with you
You never cared about my good
I know; you know; it’s true

You betrayed me
You let slip my secrets
You thought I could see
How your elucidation fits

Yet I don’t see
Not at all
I don’t want you to be
The girl who ensured
Our friendship’s fall

Maybe that’s not what you want
Maybe you don’t want
To be friends again
Maybe, just maybe, you want
Me to yet again take the blame

Perhaps you think
It is always my fault
I’m waiting for you to wink
Or do a summersault
Just tell me it’s a joke
Or give me a playful poke

Yet I can see
Behind your smile
What you can be
Your quality of vile

What do you want me to say?
That it is okay?
No, I’m done here
Indeed it is “the end”
Now I ‘am’ devoid of fear
Can’t call you a friend
Not anymore
Yeah I’m going to slam the door
Time to say goodbye.
And don’t worry
Later, I’ll also cry.
