I thought I found a friend
I thought I found a best friend
Matter of fact I thought I found a sister
An older sister I could be myself with
Someone who could help me with anything
I thought this person, the person I cared for so much
Would stay forever
But that wasn’t the case
She only lasted about a year, and I don’t know why
After that I was invisible
The girl, friend, best friend, sister I claimed I had was now gone
I was nonexistent in her world
For months I tried to get her back
Make her see where she went wrong
Hope she’d tell me where I went wrong
But I was invisible
Now I realize I lost a sister
I lost a best friend
I lost a friend

I guess I was simply toxic.
