Best Friend - Poem by Mel. D.

We've always been the very best of friends,
And I told her all of my secret stuff,
Private matters she promised to defend,
And I thought that her promise was enough.
She knows that my life has been pretty tough,
And I thought that she understood the need
To keep to herself the parts that were rough;
That's the arrangement to which we agreed.
But apparently trust is too hard to heed,
For she spilled to someone she barely knows,
Dug up and told what in her I'd buried,
So now she must reap what it is she sews.
My closest friend has become a stranger;
My most trusted confidant, my traitor.

    Sometimes we make poor jugements and place more trust in people we thought deserved it, than we should.because we used the standards we set for ourselves, but others don't always meet them.Thats a hard lesson to learn, but a lesson well learned for the future.nice writng. (Report) Reply

    She'd always been your very best friend,
    You told her all your secret stuff:
    private matters she vowed to defend.
    Her promise was not enough.
    She knew your life's been pretty tough.
    You thought that she'd agreed
    To keep your rough to herself.
    She couldn't keep the trust.
    she spilled out all your rough.
    The friend you'd put up on a shelf
    you trod her in the dust.
