Real Friends?

Lateefah Fatunbi

Stop pretending.

Our friendship is obviously closer to ending.
Not because of me, but because of the time with other people you’re spending.
Manipulative you are, I am offended.
Yet you never thought to right your wrongs.
Never thought to come off strong.
You never thought to reach out first.
Always victimizing yourself like you’re the one that’s hurt.
I ain’t never felt a pain like this.
You broke my heart and made it twist.
Now my heart hurts and I feel so cold.
You walk around with your head held up all bold.
