"The Betrayal"

Everybody wants something from me now
It's just a matter of time before they show their true self
Do the depths of friendship go beyond this lie?
Or were they faking it the entire time
You betrayed and stabbed me in the back
Leaving me broken and lonely

There was time when I was happy
My best friend who I thought loved me
Telling her everything including the darkest of secrets
Sharing and giving her my heart
Until she pulled it out and crushed it
Walking away without looking back
I stood there frozen, feeling the tears leaving my eyes
What the HELL did I do wrong?

Feeling scared and hopeless
Needing a little light in the darkness
Can't escape the hole that's in my chest
It's hollow and empty, feeling numb and can't feel a thing
The Dark follows me, leaving a trail of sad faces and no hope
The sun looks bummed out
Or maybe it's just my eyes

My heart like the Grinch's
It's two sizes smaller with no feeling
Only hatred and anger that's taken place
When I see her, it's only a reminder of what was taken
I could never forgive but does time really heal all wounds?
Like the saying goes, "It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend." "It was a mistake you said." But the cruel thing was, it felt like the mistake was mine, for trusting you."
