    the exterior
    is calm, nonchalant, and daring
    the interior
    is lonely, broken, and uncaring
    what happened to the person i loved, the one i called my friend?
    it seems as if the tables have turned, and i'm left to struggle in the wind
    i know your life wasn't easy, although you made it seem so
    truthfully i used to be jealous of you,i thought you were beautiful
    you did all the things i wanted to do, but i was not allowed
    you had all the attention i thirsted for, and that's no surprise
    now the tables have turned and i'm not distant, you're the one who is
    i don't do all the things i wanted to do though, cuz i've learned from experience
    i get all the attention you used to get, but i don't lower my standards
    i would hear rumors of you sexual intent, but i just thought it was untruthful dander
    i chose not to believe
    i chose not to receive
    i took everything as a lie
    now i know it was nothing but the truth
    but you've gone way too high
    you're a fallen angel in this world
    you were my best friend, my homegirl
    but i refused to realize the dangerous truth
    the things i know now are of no use
    and sometimes i think that it's all my fauit that you're gone
    i could have been the one to rescue you when you were all alone
    but since i would never believe
    i was not there to retrieve
    i was determined every word said was make believe
    you're a fallen angel in this world
    you were my best friend
    my life long friend
    ****...
    i miss you girl...

    it's hard to say goodbye
    to yesteryears
    when they bring forth
    many tears...
    peace
