Friend or Foe



I see a friend who grew up during my days,
Or foe who took my life away.
If I tell you I like him,
I would be lying to you.
I still remember the day my girl fell for him.
I greeted him and started to conversate with him,
Told him how happy I was to see him,
And my nose started getting longer than Pinocchio's nose.
I asked him about Alexandra,
He told me an argument took her to God.
I said at least we won't need to fight for her anymore,
Alexandra's death had my pants burning if I told you I was happy.
He told me he's sorry about what happen,
That he knew how much I loved her.
That's when he left and I stayed staring at him,
I had a gun but dare not to shoot him.
