Silent bullying

A false friend.
Sickly sweet in the group.
Talons strike at you.
The target – you.

Poisonous barbs.
With no visual marks.
Only emotional sting.
You cry silent tears.

Such cunning cleverness.
You cannot proof.
Seeming like a joke.
You bear the laughter.

When confronted.
A hurt look.
An apology follows.
You become the villain.

Lesson learned.
You remain silent.
You tolerate the barbs.
One day truth will unfold.
