In the movies
I always saw people hurt
by the ones they didn't know
With no rhyme or reason
And always by strangers

But what they don't show
Is what I always knew
How it hurts
so much more
when the person hurting you is dear

The friend handing out snacks
And carelessly passing over you
The little comment
that they don't think twice about
but which makes your chest tight
and you fight back tears
knowing they will never know
how much it hurt

Staying home on the weekend
because you weren't invited
even though the others were
Being told to change seats
so they can sit by another friend
Having no partner for class
because the others have already paired up
without giving you a second thought

And they don't know
and don't think
Your presence seems irrelevant
and you wonder why you're there
and if any of them really think about you

That's what hurts
The careless
of those closest to you

The dearer to your heart
the more painful the words
When you speak and they brush you off
and you feel your heart shatter
and you become fragile

Without even knowing
friends can do the most damage

I think you snuck into my head at some point and pulled my memories out. This was the last 2 years of my high school life. Love how you wrote this.

Thank you so much! I think many people have probably experienced this, unfortunately.

Unfortunately I believe you are probably correct....
