Friendships Come – Friendships Go

Trustworthy pals
Opportunist casuals

Facial expressions
Camouflage deceptions

Hornswoggling hellos
Gut instincts follow

Routine dream players
Consistent heart-breakers

Doubtful succumb handsome charms
Watchful observation sound-off alarms

Flawless performances thou heed
Wary romantic semblances foresee

Insidious characters await opportunes
Stealthily vulnerable genuines consume

Empath's knowledgeability full intact
Dismissal routine requests pass-fail test

Once promises broken hurtful gut-wrenchers 
Unspokens possible signs potential betrayers

Think back high school days friends true versus fakes 
Some let go no regrets, faithful kept close no mistakes.
