>Friend day #15 november PAD chapbook challenge-"just when you thought it was safe”

>You brought me in — your kindness
My friend
I trusted you, told you secrets
Buried inside for many years

Then I set my armour down,
Forgetting to keep it near
You struck me hard,
Sent me tumbling

I tried to get up …
You slashed me with your sword
Slicing me into belittled pieces,
Leaving me to bleed to death
