Betrayed - an ache in my heart


Everything I wanted

Everything I longed for

You seemed to have


But now as I watch you

You’re not the same

The ache in my heart tells me

I’ve been betrayed


Your eyes that once glittered

Blue with such grace

The love that was in them

Has seemed to fade

The ache in my heart tells me

I’ve been betrayed


The love that had conquered

Sweet words that were said

Now all is gloomy

And sky looks so gray

The ache in my heart tells me

I’ve been betrayed


Where did you go

Where is that place

That leaves me crying

In hurt and disgrace


Where is the laughter

Where is the flame

That we had lit

All night and all day


The ache in my heart tells me

I’ve been betrayed

I behold strength

Tears came and they went

Now I know truth

In a heart that still aches


When I turn weak

From a smile you’ve displayed

I will remember I’ve

Been betrayed

You did a beautiful job describing your feelings. I wonder if he knows? I totally understand what you mean about feeling "betrayed" and that it has nothing to do with infidelity. I, too feel that way. Beautiful poem, sad for me, but good enough to stir up my emotions. That's a good thing.

Hi Madison22,

Feelings are so deep in this poem that it made me sad. This quote explains all......

“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish it's source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.” Anais Nin

When you love someone and have been betrayed it is hard to gain trust again. It is hard to get over even if you want to, I too have been betrayed. Mine was my own flesh and blood, my sister. You can feel your heart as you read your poem. Very well done
