As you say "hello" for the very first time
A wonderful thought rushes into my mind
A warm and friendly feeling of delight
A new friendship happening on this night
It really does seem so very right
Truly accepting each other with such "insight"
With a sense of vulnerability and "being at ease"
We fulfill each others "caring" and "wanting" needs
All in the name of "friendship", we sit and reply
Responding so sensitively with " Oh my"
Perhaps at first, holding on too tight
They try to be that "friend" with all their might
So we chat and smile to be polite
When deep down inside they want to take flight
"This is not for me," they sense inside
So on the buddies list, they put me on "hide"
Never explaining the reasons "why"
No matter how much I seem to "try"
From day to day, they never appear
And when they do show up, they sputter, they "care"
Not being born "yesterday", you say to yourself
This "friend" of mine is putting me on the shelf
With the lies and half truths that one has spoken
You soon realize that they were just "jokin'
A true friend, indeed would not behave this way
They would want to be "in touch" each and every day
It's true, that in some circumstance they may not be always able
But for the love of Mike, are they that "unstable"
You can go on forever with the "things" that become wrong
Your heart is no longer happy or in tune with a song
You question yourself and wonder why
All it took was a friendly "hello"
..so why not a pleasant "goodbye"
The excuses you hear become pain in your heart
Realizing your "friend" isn't so smart
You too now know it's time to end
For, that "special" someone really isn't your friend
So..... as in time, it all comes to pass
Only for you to realize, that "friend" is really an ASS !!

word from the author...
So, perhaps in a small way I can help, and you too can help others from becoming a “victim”. If there has been “someone” that you have known or currently know, that fits this type of behavior, please E-mail me the Screen Name with a short message signed by you and it will be posted here for others to be aware . I am sure, I too will have a few names to list as well. Remember, A “true friend” is worth their weight in gold.
Do take care of yourself !
Thank you for listening. <3

|Gosh, I tried and I know what kind of person I am as a friend. Too bad you can't be half of that. Someday, I hope the table gets turned and you "want someone" to be your friend and you get the very same treatment you dish out !!!!|
|Mikey: Take a look at yourself...i`m sure you`ll find a good person in there someday. Just dig very deep. Good Luck!|
|Yagamashi, I wish nothing but the best for you, dispite the way you treated me. Hopefully one day you will learn that you are indeed your brothers keeper.|
|HI THOMAS ITS FRAN...YOU GOT ME TO THE POINT OF SUICIDE AND THAT WAS UNCALLED FOR. THE BAD PART IS I STILL LOVE YOU. I NEVER DREAMED LOVE COULD HURT THIS BAD. I DIDN'T BELIEVE PEOPLE COULD HURT OTHERS LIKE YOU'VE HURT ME. I HOPE YOU ARE HAPPY FOREVER AND FIND WHAT IT IS YOU'RE LOOKING FOR...IT WASN'T ME. SASSY|
|shlomi1 : Hope you can take a long hard look at this .You are slowly|
losing the best friend you`ll ever have. Thanks for the past year. It was
great. Love and hugs, Karen
|The lesson in trust you taught me is a very painful one but also very valuable one.|
Insanity is repeating the same mistake over and over and expecting different results. I hope your insanity stops .... for the sake of other women who would fall prey to you.......Carma comes
Peoples hearts and lives are something you shouldn't play with.......
The lies you told~ hurt
its starts within you~~~~
|I don't know why you asked me to delete your name after 12 months of being what I thought was friends...obviously you were wanting more than that...not sure...maybe one day you will be adult enough to tell me why we can't be friends any longer...you are gone from my list but not my mind...|
