Friends & Flatterers

Reminiscing in a corner of room so dark,
And heart being ripped into particles of quark,
The pangs of guilt left an indelible mark!!

Betrayed by a soul in the midst of storm,
Meaning of trust underwent a rapid transform.
Somehow, he wiped off tears to assume a dauntless form!!

He lamented and mocked himself for being a fool,
As the path so taken was not that cool.
Comprehending a human psyche appeared no less than a deadpool!!

Roaring waves of life makes it arduous to row,
And succour of a friend eventually lets you grow,
But, always beware of a flattering foe!!
