I’ve lost a friend. No, they haven’t left to a better place. No, they haven’t gone far, far away. No, we didn’t quarrel or argue over something that severed the tie. I’ve cut them loose after discovering what a monster they were. A smiling, happy, jovial, carefree person to us. But a monster, lurking in the shadows. They weren’t who I thought they were. It tears me apart how someone who appears so harmless on the exterior, have such a blackened cold heart. I don’t know if they’re worth saving from the depths of their own despair anymore. I’m trapped between helping the person who I MYSELF knew, or the fiend that I now know. Abusive, volatile, heartless and selfish.
