Sunset

You made me rise the other day.  
Listening to all the lies.  
Man, I got better things to do  
than listen to you.  
Wanted to scream like a jet  
but instead I'll fade out like  
golden sunset.  
I won't be dragged through
the mud again.  
Got bloody nails dragging myself out.  
This time it's crystal clear  
what you're all about.  
When you were hanging with  
a snake. I knew then.  
Didn't have to count to ten.  
All the misspoken words  
taken out of context.  
Exaggerated emotions  
were used like swords  
trying to cut me down.  
I feel like you should have  
known I'm a viper myself.  
But, nah, I'll save my bite  
for someone else.  
Time to shed all of my muddy skin  
and move somewhere new.  
Cause friendships come  
and go.  
So no.  
I won't scream like a jet,  
Instead I'll fade out like an  
everlasting sunset.  
Where I will continue to glow  
even from millions of miles away.

I had a friend a few years ago who always liked to take small jabs at me when we would group text with other friends. It got old. So I started taking bigger jabs back. I am a writer and its kinda what I do. It turned into this vortex of negativity. So I just quit engaging and wrote this instead. We no longer talk and I'm a better writer for it. Keep positive people in your life and let go of the negative. I promise in the end it will make you stronger.
