Winter hydrangea. Meadowlark Botanical Gardens, VAYou … closer than a sister or a brother
You … shared my hopes and dreams
You … loved those who were mine
You … shared my highs and lows
You … laughed with me
You … consoled me
You … I believed to be more than petty selfishness

You … had to be right, no matter what
You … replied with smug platitudes when I needed your help
You … failed painfully at being my friend
You … hurt me in ways I didn’t know existed

You … who, in the end, I didn’t know at all
Me Β … Β the fool who believed your lies
