She can because she thinks she can.

Remember when we were young
And still friends?
We would sit and laugh and joke
About our time well spent
But now that time has come to pass
Hopefully the memories will last
But nothing is forever
And friendships are built to be severed
I cry a little bit
Because you died more than just a bit
The best part of you left with your innocence
All that’s left is guided by selfishness
Why can’t we stay young?
Instead of treasure what is left
It’s time to say good-bye
To try and move on
I tried to fight for you
But you’re too blind to manage
To save yourself
If you can salvage
What’s left and start to build again
Come and look me up
And I might be willing to reminisce
But you have to fix
Yourself and cleanse your soul

Before going off in search of friends
I can no longer hide and pretend
To stay friends until the end
You’ve made your bed and lied in it
So soon you’ll see it’s not all it’s cracked up to be
All that’s left to say is good-bye for now
Until we meet again
My once was friend.

This is the sequel to "A Love That Never Was" Unfortunately, my friend had an on off relationship with this creep who introduced himself with a fake name. After she found out he had been cheating on her since the beginning we thought that she was done with him...but she wasn't. Instead she took him back and ran away from home to live with him. She threw everything away for him and broke everyone's hearts. She was gone for about a month, it took a month for her to hit rock bottom, and she finally came home this week! For a while I had thought we were no longer friends and this poem is how I coped with it. Now that she is back her life is coming together again unfortunately, some people aren't as forgiving and accepting as she hopes them to be and she is still on the verge of losing very important friendships to her. Some relationships will never be the same for her again but she hopes for the best and does not wish to ever give up on them. She is rebuilding trust with a lot of people and she intends to succeed.
