Shaken are my dreams,
Feel the need to scream,
Helpless I so feel from within,
Don’t know what I should do now,
Why this happened and how,
You left me but I loved you so much,
My love for you was pure and such,
Don’t know when this pain will end,
Where my dreams won’t descend!
I Fell Strong
I fell for you so strong,
To me you truly belonged,
Then you left me one day,
I still remember that way,
When you ruined my trust,
There is no feeling of disgust,
Because I feel bad for you,
You will pay for your deed,
I don’t have any need,
Coz I know you now!
I Trusted You
I trusted you so much in life,
I gave you all my name,
But, things from your side were different,
Of putting all the blame,
I thought things would change,
But, things are more estrange,
Did not expect this from you
You were the one of the closest few,
Now I feel the betray!
The Pain Within
The pain that you have given me,
Is beyond my imagination,
I loved you and cared for you
You left me in the blue,
You could have simply told me,
To get away from you,
I would have done that,
Only for you,
Only to see you smile,
But, things are not the same now!
The Word For You
The feelings have become so numb,
The pain in the eyes,
Nothing seems so good,
Nothing seems wise
When someone shows you true colors of life,
You don’t know what to do,
You don’t know how to survive,
The pain takes over everything
Life changes with a blink,
With the betrayal!
Good words will stay
Good words always stay in heart
It’s there right from the start
Good deeds will go with me I know
I may not tell you or show
But what you did with me was not right
And knowing it all in spite
I supported you with all my might
But I can’t take it anymore
Your betrayal will show
You the colors of life
The agony that I am suffering through,
Is really down and deep,
Every time when I think of you,
The only thing I do is weep,
Why did you do that with me?
I wasn’t able to see,
Your betrayal to thee,
Can’t take this anymore,
Can’t take this no more!
I Had Faith
I had faith in life, When things were tough to strive,
You shattered my hopes and dreams of love,
Left me all weeping and in shove,
Will not be able to love again,
Will not be able to do,
Without any reason or clue,
Why this happened to me,
As I still want to see,
Your good side!
“The Shadow Rose”
A Noisette on my garden path
An ever-swaying shadow throws;
But if I pluck it strolling by,
I pluck the shadow with the rose.
Just near enough my heart you stood
To shadow it,—but was it fair
In him, who plucked and bore you off,
To leave your shadow lingering there?
By Frances Anne Kemble
Better trust all and be deceived,
And weep that trust and that deceiving,
Than doubt one heart that, if believed,
Had blessed one’s life with true believing.
O, in this mocking world too fast
The doubting fiend o’ertakes our youth;
Better be cheated to the last
Than lose the blessed hope of truth.
Love Is A Mirror
Quinn More By Quinn
A sharpened dagger stabbed in his heart,
Ripping in two, ripping apart.
It took only a few words, but her words cut him deep,
Stealing emotions, making him weak.
A two sided mirror true in reflection,
A double edged knife cutting connections,
A place in his heart forever reserved
For the one that he loved but didn’t deserve.
She twisted the dagger; it tore him apart.
She stole what was left; she stole a broken heart.
Feeling down, alone, and empty inside,
Decisions to make but can’t decide.
Hurt from pain of a broken heart.
Days go on as if they are dark.
Looking for happiness, the light to return.
My soul feels empty, deceptive, a burn.
I Have Learned
I have learned…
That trust is a powerful thing.
You have no idea what it may bring.
It can sting your heart
and tear apart your soul.
Or it can warm your heart
and enlighten your soul.
I have learne
That trust is hard to discover.
It is buried deep down under.
People say it is easy to gain trust.
I agree with them in a way.
For them I have lost all trust.
I have decided to go my own way.
I have learned…
That trust means to lust,
and lust is a must.
Sometimes it can be an illusion,
but it is something you cannot deny.
Therefore, I have come to this conclusion.
Trust everyone but not the devil inside.
Krizel Grace Mar 2022
On a pedestal, you stand
With angels beside you playing trumpet and lyre
They’ll sing hallelujah
When you smile and open your arms
And I’d say your name
A thousand times like a prayer before I sleep
Sing psalms on Sundays
Like a devotee, lifting my hands as I weep
But you were a mere god,
Pinnacled upon an altar that I made.
For a long time, I stayed
Only to be tricked and betrayed.
I once hummed along
With the angels as they sing
But an atheist came and uttered,
‘Unvaried hymns are tiring.’
It was a all lie
By Pooja Basnett
You said you were my knight in shining armor,
I was blinded by the radiance!
I thought you were here to rescue me,
Little did I know, you were here to steal!
Your sweet talk, your blue skies, they were all a lie,
You think I will walk away, won’t put up a fight!
You might be a wizard, but you will be beaten in your own game,
Truth wins, Always!!
A Heart’s Pain
By Ariel Smith
Scars made on my heart never heal.
This is what a girl should never feel.
You stomped on my soul, ripped my heart.
You took my hope, tore it apart.
You played my heart like it was a game.
Now I know you never felt the same.
You shattered my heart in the times of need
Where it always has to bleed.
My heart, you made slowly stop beating.
The pain you caused quickly began repeating.
You told me you love me, that you’d always be there,
But now those are just words floating in the air.
You stabbed my hope; I quickly stopped dreaming.
Your love for me ceased, my heart began screaming,
Slicing my heart, the heartbreaking rain.
When you broke my heart, I couldn’t stop the pain.
Now I truly, honestly see
That you never actually loved me.
How Can I Forget?
That very first day that we met,
It’s a feeling I’ll never forget.
All the experiences that we’ve shared,
I knew right away that you were rare.
You see, it’s hard to find someone like you,
Usually, they’re too good to be true.
Though I should’ve entered with more ration,
With you I felt so much passion.
I wish those things had never happened.
It feels as though my love’s been abandoned.
All I wanted was to make you happy,
So why is it that I have to feel so crappy?
I want nothing more than for us to move on,
But it’s so hard now that the trust is gone.
I want to get past this, I really do…
What can I do to make you be true?
My love for you is like an undying flame.
And I once wished for our love to remain.
Do you remember that day, the day that it snowed?
It’s the day that I wished for our love to grow.
You hurt me that night; you need to know that you did.
And I need you to know that I can forgive.
But I’m really struggling with trying to forget,
Because I still feel the same as that first day we met
Dream not of love, to think it like
What waking love may prove to be,
For I dreamed so and broke my heart,
When my false lover slighted me.
Love, like to flowers, is sweet when green;
The rose in bud aye best appears;
And she that loves a handsome man
Should have more wit than she has years.
I put my finger in a bush,
Thinking the sweeter rose to find;
I pricked my finger to the bone,
And left the sweetest rose behind.
I threw a stone into the sea,
And deep it sunk into the sand,
And so did my poor heart in me
When my false lover left the land.
I watched the sun an hour too soon
Set into clouds behind the town;
So my false lover left, and said
“Good night” before the day was down.
I cropt a lily from the stalk,
And in my hand it died away;
So did my joy, so will my heart,
In false love’s cruel grasp decay.
A Ritual To Read To Each Other
By William Stafford
If you don’t know the kind of person I am
and I don’t know the kind of person you are
a pattern that others made may prevail in the world
and following the wrong god home we may miss our star.
For there is many a small betrayal in the mind,
a shrug that lets the fragile sequence break
sending with shouts the horrible errors of childhood
storming out to play through the broken dyke.
And as elephants parade holding each elephant’s tail,
but if one wanders the circus won’t find the park,
I call it cruel and maybe the root of all cruelty
to know what occurs but not recognize the fact.
And so I appeal to a voice, to something shadowy,
a remote important region in all who talk:
though we could fool each other, we should consider–
lest the parade of our mutual life get lost in the dark.
For it is important that awake people be awake,
or a breaking line may discourage them back to sleep;
the signals we give–yes or no, or maybe–
should be clear: the darkness around us is deep.
Take Me With You
By Sulaiman Mohd Yusof
Dusk chasing the lazy dawn
Sounds of angry skies deafening
Lightning, like a giant snapshot
Blinding your eyes to madness
Rains fiercely flooding the downhill pond
The slippery path ruining
Mind halts desires getting bold
Vision cuffs to the onus
I saw you standing near to Heaven pane
Gazing at sizzling droplets
As martyr as your teardrops
You smile a deadly blossom
The pink Satin garment you wore slain
My heart into pieces
Don’t kill me now my heartthrob
My death isn’t awesome
Is there any other love in you?
Betrayal is the word for sinner
Remember my promises?
I will hang my neck to your flawless hair
Decapitating my head for your moo
Enhancing your voices to purer
Disjointing my legs for I couldn’t run less
Making us the most corrupted pair
Take me with you
The singing stars will guide us to eternity
Rainbows will render us a lift
The earth our magic carpet
Eyes of diamond blue
Grab my souls grab my insanity
My blood clogs and my veins stiff
I’m frozen to your instinct parapet
Take me with you
We could write off the blues
Blood in blood
Love in red
Don’t let me watching you breathing
For the last time
This was all about teh Betrayal poems.
