Betrayal

With my heart and soul

I believed in you

You don’t know

How much of my love

Was there to guide you through

In the many miles

I have travelled

If only you knew

How many were filled

With thoughts of my return

Or how many lonely hours I have spent

Holding on to an empty space

Wishing it to be your face

I longed for the moment

When I would fall back

Into your arms

Hoping that your love

Would totally surround me

If only you knew

How much I had missed

Every part of you

Or indeed how strong and deep

My feelings ran

 

But my welcome home

Was the mention of a sisters’ name

Time and time again

And the warmth and closeness

That you felt for her

Totally crushed me

Broke my heart a million times

And even though I cowardly cried

You misunderstood my tears

So I lied

    1. All these posts come from a very dark time, and it was the only way I could deal with things.
      It was very good therapy, and looking back at my words now, only helps to remind me of how far I have travelled and how much I have had to overcome.
      Thank you for your comments as always. Sx 🙂
