How A Best Friend Can Make You Hurt

I lift the taboo 

To speak about 

The greatest loss of them all 

The loss of a best friend 

To talk about the pain 

Without people making it seem 

Like they can't break your heart

In the same way 

A partner would 

The endless nights 

Of wondering 

What could've been 

Oh, yes

It is so much worse 

than any lover could break your heart 

For a best friend 

For an ex best friend 

Helped you grow 

They knew your pain

Yet they left in the end 

Anyway 

 

This poem is about: 
Me
