Betrayer - a poem

Updated on April 26, 2015

Tonight,

I was unfaithful to my bestest friend.

And I didn’t feel a thing.

Tonight,

I fooled my own wounded feelings

only by looking into the eyes I never did.

Tonight,

I committed a repulsive treason

not being aware of its happening.

Tonight,

I stand alone with my thoughts

persecuted by my unforgivable sin.

Tonight,

I wish I were dead or maybe defeated

with no purpose and goal to win.

Tonight,

I must forget the reason of my shudder

and become extinct like I’ve always been.

      Thank you a lot.

      Too bad alcohol wasn't a problem here, hehe :D

      This makes me think of the song where you think the guy is singing about himself. About halfway through the word "Alcohol" pops into the song and you realize what caused all of the problems.

      This was good Tanja, I liked it. I voted it up, shared it and pinned it.
