Betrayal

That first discovery

Like a knife twisting inside

This cannot be true

Not to me, others yes

Not me

All that investment

All those lies

How I was blinded

Darkness

I want to believe

It's not true

Any excuse

To camouflage the truth

Make the pain go away

I am falling apart

The trust has gone

So has part of me

Forever

Like the death of a rose

Buds closed

No nurture or love

Light truly gone out

You put me on a pedestal

I thought so too

Only to find

This was not true

Like your support

I am a crumbling wreck
