It feels so cold when a friend hurts you,
turns against you and leaves.
It’s heartbreaking to know this is
the same friend who knows what you believe.
What would make a heart crack,
crumble, and fall apart?
Or maybe you were so sadly mistaken
to have believed they ever had a heart.
Why would my friend leave me
after wanting to know me so bad?
He swore he was forever and promised
to try to never make me sad.
So why would he break my soul
if he knew he was a key
to a way of opening up and trusting,
which brought me friends who make me happy?
