I'M Just A Rag - Poem by Victoria Black

I’m watching my friend mess up again,
She never understands what love is,
All he did was make a move,
Know she decided she wants someone new,
She hates not being single,
Even though she hates being single,
All I get to do,
Is watch her make the same mistake as before.

In a week or two,
She’ll ask me for help,
I get blamed,
For everything that she doesn’t do right,
I’m just a rag on her shoulder,
I wipe away her tears,
But when I’m hurt,
I’m just a ghost that disappeared.

    Never let yourself be used, its not fair for someone as wonderful as you. This poem is light and understandable, yet serious and has underlying meanings. great job.

    hey victoria,

    this is really beautiful...don't let yourself get walked on by people like that. She isn't a true friend if you are just a shoulder to cry on. You have real talent, and real emotion comes through from your pieces. Easily identifiable, and understandable, I liked alot.

    Many many times I have been in this situation...all we as friends can do is be there for the friend when they are in need. If continue to feel used and only contacted when she needs something then it's up to you to decide whether or not she is a true friend or a sometime friend. Friends are there for each other and maybe at this point in time, she needs you more than you need her ;) . Stick in there; it'll get better.
