All around me I am faced with deception and despair,
Sinister faces continually appear from unlikely places,
People of comfort constantly become few.
All around me I see signs of betrayal,
And my 'true' friends dwindle to two.
People are completely ignorant of my plight
And many 'friends' know nothing of what I go through.
Time goes on and so does my never ending torment,
Death is not the answer and I wish I knew what I should do.
I hear a whispering going on,
Rumors that resound in my head.
They say that of my two friends
One will show their colors true.
I didn't want to believe it,
Neither would bring me more hurt.
What's this new pain I am feeling?
It's a stabbing pain in my heart.
Looking I see a danger plunged in my chest
All the way down to the hilt.
I guess I should've listened to the voices.
As one 'friend' twists the blade
I guess I am destined to a life of betrayal.
But at least I can have this to say
That at least the final person of trust
Tried to catch me as I fall
So I guess as I slip into darkness,
At least I didn't experience the betrayal of one more.
