At first everything starts off with smiles and giggles
Innocence and childsplay
The most raw form of happiness there is
A blissful friendship between a little boy and girl— a tale as old as time
But as they get older a dark presence corners them both
And while one stays pure the other succumbs.
The two go on but something feels off
Because the voices have made their way deep inside.
They tell the boy that it’s okay, that nothing really matters and to only help himself
All the while the girl watches in horror stricken fear at what is happening
She begs and pleads him to stop to turn back into who he was
But it’s simply too late because now the voices have manifested as friends.
Sinister friends who have corrupted him from the inside out
These friends tell the boy lies about the girl
And foolishly he believes them, ruining it all
He scoffs and laughs and says horrible things
Ones that can never be undone.
It takes a while but slowly the girl understands that they were no longer the children they used to be
That the world truly was an evil, evil place.
She felt lost at first and tried everything to get the boy back, but eventually she gave up.
And at the end as a lone tear fell down her face the girl knew the feeling of betrayal well
The betrayal of a friendship broken at last.
