This is heartwrenchingly eloquent. It shows perfectly the pain of betrayal by the false words of a so-called friend. Very well-titled.
Wow this is a powerful poem. You have excellent imagery in this piece.

Strong, strong message, given here in a very readable verse which simply drew me into the pain and frustration of the fruit of gossip.

Ouch! I felt the knife go in. You did a good job of expressing the betrayal...I could see and feel the agony.

Powerful first stanza that sets the stage for the rest of the poem. You have described the pain and hurt very poignantly. The hurt of a friend is much worse than that of an enemy.
Congratulations for placing 10th in this level!
