"Betrayal"-Poem

Updated on July 23, 2012

Betrayal

Flowers have lost their fragrance,

Stars have lost their shine.

I sit by my window

And think about you all the time.


With tears in my eyes

And the pressure my heart bears,

I wake up & realise-

"Life isn't just fair"


All your promises; All ur lies

Remind me of your betrayal, day & night.

You cheated me, you made me cry

The feelings within me are destroyed.


You asked me to trust you

You asked me to rely..

Yet in a blink of an eye

You bid Good-Bye.


You said you would be there

You sweared you would stay.

You said it was forever

You promised u would never go away!


You taught me to love, you taught me to care

You were my world,my heart,my air.

You cleared my doubts when I was mistaken

And filled my heart n soul with affection.


There were times when I couldn't walk,

You gave me the strength to run.

There were times when I wanted to talk,

You were always there to listen.


You were always so good & full of fun

How was I to know you would leave me without a single explanation?

You said you loved me, I thought you were the one

How was I to know You would leave me all bruised and shaken?

      your heart seem to be broken

      however your heart will heal with time

      betrayal and infidelity is so close to a crime.

      it rob your soul

      it leave you so empty

      it unbearable even to rest.

      I know where you speak from with this. i have been betrayed myself and it was the worst kind of pain. Left me questioning myself, if it was my fault, was I not good enough and more, but in the end i saw it was meant to be, so sad I was but i knew i would be alright. Thank you for sharing

      OUCH and I am so sorry if this is non-fiction. Love can sure hurt but we can learn from it once the hurt subsides a bit.

      Dear Hajira, I'm deeply touched by the depth of emotion you've conveyed here in this meaningful verse. It is a sad reality that life throws us these kind of curves. Know that as beautiful as you are inside and out, this too will pass.

      May God send you his blessings.

      Love from your friend, Peg.

      A heart that has not been broken, has never loved.

      The moment you love someone or something, you sign up to be hurt.

      Its a subconscious risk you take willingly, but you never know that you do.. ;)

      "Living might mean taking chances but they're worth taking

      Loving might be a mistake but its worth making...

      That is an awesome poem,Hajira. You released a lot. You are going to be all right. So many so-called good people get exposed for who they truly are. They should know better. That guy will pay dearly unexpectedly. I am glad that you were able to move on rapidly. Get through every day,your way.

      You have beautifully expressed the pain in your heart through this poem. Nicely penned and emotionally-captivating. I wish you well.

      Hi ArmondCase: Feel your loss and the empty space left as all voids are. But you knew love, whooo, now you know what it is and how to care and bee( yes sting) with someone else. He left but you now have a standard. Be strong be the future, give your love as it should be given…pure and simple. It will be returned…true love always is, just not in the way we all expect it!!
