My Friend: Gorgon
I love you, so I send you away. I send you away because I love myself more. You’re selfish. Your self-destructive ways; get out of my life. I am free of your deceit. Free of your dishonesty.
Don’t come to me honey, with your problems and share. Ask for my advice. Askhole, I no longer care. “Secrets don’t share.” Words you spoke so I didn’t dare.
Then, you blamed me when you shared. He claimed “our friendship is up, over.” But don’t despair. On Facebook, you’ll pretend you still care. You can save face there. No, my dear, you’re guilt I will not bear.
You broke your plea for privacy. Shared with him what you wouldn’t let me. When he threatened your marital fantasy, you threw me under the bus for clemency. Your ruse. You didn’t expect me to see. Save yourself – let me drown at sea. You have no mercy from me.
I’m not your pawn. Your friendship favors are overdrawn. I’m not yesterday’s fawn. I see you for what you are: a gorgon. I’m moving on.
