To befriend toxicity

Empathetic and egocentric unfavourably attract
But you do not see it
Hypocrisy disfigured your perspective, light was dark

Solitude of the mind twisted facts and memories
But you do not see it
New memories denied the honour of being retained

Self-sabotage barred success and companionship
But you do not see it
Dreams were asked for and family privilege provided

Your friends had struggles they laboured alone
But you do not see it
Mental illness explains but it doesn't excuse

There is an unspoken blame if you suicide
But you do not see it
Induced tip-toeing around your cruelty

The loom of illness and pain hanging over my being
But you do not see it
My pain wasn't worth your time

The heft of abandonment latching to the insincere
But I didn't see it
