A Ton of Bricks

I am learning a lesson which I never wanted to learn 
It hit me like a sack of bricks. 
Breaking my heart as it pounds. 
When people wrong others, 
They will wrong you too, 
know they won't change. 
I always wanted to believe people can change for the good. 
I wanted to believe there was good in all people. 
I wanted to believe the apology. 
I wanted to believe the vows of friendship. 
All lies. 
I had something they wanted, 
so for that time, I was their friend, 
or what they think a friend is 
When I have nothing to offer but friendship, 
they were gone. 
And I am left broken hearted 
and cursing myself for trusting them. 
Feeling myself crumble under the bricks 
Tears are all dried up now 
It hit me like a ton of bricks 
I never saw it coming.

Success! You're on the list.
