Guess I Should Have Known

Updated on September 15, 2020

Guess I really should have

known that you would be

like all the rest.

That all the pretty words

were really just that.

Just pretty words to pass

the time until you felt that

you didn't need me anymore.

Guess I really should have

known that you would

walk away just the way

that all of the others

have done to me.

Guess I really should have

known that when you said

I was your best friend

you really didn't mean it.

Now i'm heartbroken just

as I have been before.

Wondering why people think

that they need to lie so

much and play with others

feelings to benefit themselves.

Guess I really should have

known that in the end you

would let me down again.

Everyone has, I just never

thought that you would be

the one to hurt me the most.

I never imagined that you

would let me down again.

Guess I really should have

known that our time would

come to an end that I'd be

the one to suffer for all

the kindness that I showed.

True friends listen to each

other. True friends do not

just walk away the minute

something doesn't go as

planned, instead they stick

it out and work together

to make each others lives

so much easier.

Guess I should have known

that in the end I was not

really your friend or anyone

to you really, because if I

was you would have not

been able to walk away as

easy as you did.

You would not have broken

my heart yet again. Guess

what they say is true

friends do come and go,

but I really thought that

you were more than that.

I really thought your words

were real and the things you

said were true. Guess I've

learned now not to open

myself up like that.

Thanks for teaching me

that trusting people,

that trusting a friend is

not something that I should

ever do again.
