What Did I Do? - Poem by Chantel Lara

What did I do?
You were my only friend
And I pushed you away
I made our friendship lead to an end
Just understand that i wasn't okay

What did I do?
You trusted me
And I let you down
I thought I was setting myself free
But I was really just letting myself drown

What did I do?
She filled my head with lies
And I let myself believe them
My mind was set on guys
No wonder people called me dumb

What did I do?
I got myself into trouble
I can no longer escape it
The pain I once felt has doubled
And it´s really hard to admit

I suppose now all I can do is apologize
And hope that you will forgive me

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem was inspired by a dear friend I once had and I pushed her away. I believed lies people were telling me instead of believing her. I can only hope she will forgive me and understand.

    Well, Back stabbers smile in your face and all the time they just want to take your place. Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see. People and the mind can plat tricks on you. Strong insight. (Report) Reply
