DeceptionRichard Xiao

Friend and friend, side by side

Warming smiles play their part

Joyous laughter in the air

Light turns to darkness

Deafening silence pierce the ears

Throbbing pain inside my back

I turn to discover the cause of my suffering

And familiar eyes gaze back at me

Happy dagger of friendship

Closed within his grasp

Dripping the blood of my own life

He looks upon my death

And has no guilt within his heart

I fall to my knees and close my eyes and ask
