    I wrote this poem for a Meniere's member a number of years ago. I don't know if it applies to either of your friends.
    I have never claimed to be much of a poet, I just have a little fun doing it.


    NOBODY’S DOORMAT

    I wasn’t put on earth to be anyone's doormat
    That's not the way a friend treats a friend
    I wasn't born to be used and sorely abused
    Time will show who’s the loser in the end

    You mistook caring and kindness for weakness
    Taking advantage of someone’s love, so true
    There's one thing that I will never give into
    My heart won’t grow hard because of you

    My eyes have been opened to the likes of you
    Pack your ego and shame, and walk out my door
    So you can take your worn-out, selfish attitude
    And don't come back bothering me anymore

    The time has come to wipe away wasted tears
    Let the new day’s rains wash away past sorrow
    Return joy and happiness to my heart and soul
    As I smile and move toward a better tomorrow​
    BE HAPPY

    Thank you so much and YES this is perfect!

    I'm trying so hard to help. Both women are in totally different situations. One was surprised and one has fought a battle for years with an unfaithful husband and lie upon lie.
    Both women need some help not to fall into a depression and move on as best they can.
    I think these poems each other a different quality that gets the sentiment through.

    I think your poetry is wonderful.
