Faces of Friendship

Friendly faces scare me the most,

I would like not to be haunted by their ghost,

That lies waiting beneath the kind facade.

I prefer enemies who skip this charade.

I’ve always feared the unknown.

To the company of pretenders I prefer being alone.

Save me the empty smiles,

I’ve been surrounded by the likes of you for a while.

Thanks to you,

In every act of kindness, I search for lies.

For each helping hand, I search my back for knives.

Thanks to you, I’ve seen not one, but all the faces of friendship.
