About the Poem
Sometimes you see a person for the first time and feel strangely connected to them. You learn and grow together. Have many first's together, first love, first kisses, first break-up, first fights. I found someone like that, his name is Stephen. We grew on each other and became fast friends, we stuck by each other no matter what. Granted we had our fights but we always made up soon after saying we were sorry and we couldn't live without each other around for help. We've been through a lot.
Then one night we were talking with my friend Jess, and he just left, walked right out in the middle of our conversation. I was hurt, and betrayed. This poem is the results of that. Of course we made up the very next morning.

|I thought you'd always be with me.
Always by my side but then you betrayed me,
in more ways than one, you left me to face
this cruel world alone.
Set adrift in a sea of night, my tears fall freely,
my face an open book showing all the pain
you've caused. First you lie, then cheat,
then deceive, then lie again, then cheat
again, then deceive again
When will this circle of pain end?
