"I think that all the silence is worse than all the violence. Fear is such a weak emotion, that's why I despise it..."

Our friendship was like art work;
We always painted inside the lines.
But then we fell apart with one quick jerk,
And we were separated with no warning signs.

You painted me with your treason;
Had me replaced within a day.
You betrayed me for no logical reason.
You led us to our decay.

The paint has long since turned into pain
And unlike on a paintbrush, it can not be washed away.
This paint shall forever remain a stain;
A constant reminder of how our friendship ran astray.
No fallout can be one sided, you claim.
According to you I was the one to betray.
You say that I am the true one at blame,
And that I caused the entire fray.

The paint of our friendship is now chipped away.
The lines have long since been painted outside of.
No one truly knows what caused the fray;
Only that there is no longer any love.

We seemed to have been pulled apart magically…
Maybe this painted friendship was always destined to end tragically.

Dedicated to every painted friendship that has been chipped away.
