My best friend, inseparable sisters
Yeah, that was us.
Laughter resonating, together to the days end
Sharing secrets, sharing stories, sharing memories
Sleepovers and movies, playful gossip
Swooning over boys, and hot celebrities
Then...break ups, and being shoulders to cry on
I got you, and you got me, right?
Realization hit me like vertigo
An echoing slap, stunning me like flash bang
Lies ricochet, your words – the instrument of deception
My mind – the auditorium
Woodwind Saxes whaling hatred
Brass trumpets blaring belittlement
Drums like cannons crashing through trust
You did this. This devastation – your medal.
For years I knew, four years I gave you chances.
Fours year, you took advantage.
Every time I thought you changed
Every time I let you in
Like a knight, I defended your cathedral of lies
Beautiful friendship, forged from broken pieces.
Nothing more than scum under my shoes
Jealous, selfish and useless
Is all I think when I see your image
Like a vulture, picking at my every flaw
Laughing at my every word when my back is turned
You don’t impress anyone
You think they’ll like you more, but you only delve deeper
Into your coffin of pointless endeavors
Each morning at 5am, I rise from my dreams
I chase them, testing my bones, my mind and my heart
I have goals and a will to reach them
My failures stand as lessons
My medals, showcases of my ability
The fire in my heart roars prideful and boundless
It surpasses my doubts, and drives me forward
If your brain can comprehend anything, let it be this!
I have achieved too much,
For you to ever break me down.
