Simply Friends
Simply friends is what you sold me
So you said - but now I see
Not a truth in what you told me
Not a thought of you and me

Topics said to be of weather
2:00 AM by telephone
Moments shared, you shared together
So I sat - I sat alone

Feeling bad for feeling cheated
So insane, I bent for you
Every hope I had, defeated
Every fear is coming true

Barely left before you kissed him
Nearly here while in his arms
Had yourself a simple system
Had a way with cheating charms

What you said - I took it lightly
But I hoped for more somehow
Snuck away to meet him nightly
But I see the scandal now

"Trust me, please - I swear it's ended"
So you said - you said before
All those nights you just pretended
Had some hurt for me in store

Thought I knew – I knew I had you
Felt my feelings start to blend
Held my heart because I had to
So you found yourself a “friend”

Simply friends, I almost bought it
Heard his name and bit my lip
Kept my cool but still I caught it
Stood and watched the tables flip
Author's Notes:
Unfinished....the "ending" could use some kick. Suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated!

I could feel the hurt and disappointment throughout your heartfelt words. If this was written from personal experience, then I hope your heart heals soon for love will come again.

Take care......Sue

I could feel your heart breaking in this poem of betrayal.

You express emotions well in your work. =))

I think the ending is good Jake. Tough write but well done.
