*****

You are not the girl I always knew,

The person I was most like, you flew –

No longer my number two,

You’re the girl I defended too. 

—–

At every step abandoned I grew, 

You are not the girl I always knew.

You say one thing, you’re actions show,

You’re not a dependable though.

——

I disattach so you won’t hurt,

Make the marks of neglect so curt.

You are not the girl I always knew,

I relied too much on you it’s true.

——

You’re not such a good person, though —

I put you on a pedestal, so –

I took care of you, and trusted you,

You are not the girl I always knew.

******

You are not the girl I always knew,

Life it changed, with it we both grew –

Forced apart at first by you, then thrown,

Hurt so much, but I’ve always known –

—–

I can’t completely trust you through –

You are not the girl I always knew.

So involved in yourself, stopped thinking,

Stopped caring, it made my soul shrink

——

To think of where life takes us, knowing —

One day you’ll leave, forever going.

You’re not the girl I always knew,

You just look like her, there are few –

—–

Who could ever replace this girl,

But she is stuck in her own world.

Changes, hoping friendship renews, 

You are not the girl I always knew.

    Are you sure you ever knew her? This is a great series and the repetition really drives home the point.

      It’s a good question. I’m glad you liked it. Sometimes people change and it’s sometimes for worse and sometimes for better. Sometimes a mix of both mostly is what I think. And perhaps, there are things about or parts of anybody we don’t really know.

        You are right. We can know someone forever and never know everything. You’re very welcome!

    Upsetting when someone isn’t who you thought they were. You’re right – we never truly know someone, hard to know ourselves sometimes.
