Betrayal - Poem by scarlette Phoenix

A Betrayal so dark,
A Betrayal so deep.
A trust now shattered
That was for years to keep.

A trust to be earned,
that was given freely.
A love now yearned,
that was given keenly.

Mistakes I made.
Lessons I learned.
Consequences dealt.
Yet your heart still burns.

Dreams now,
put on hold;
as an uncertain,
future now unfolds.

For us to move,
towards brighter days;
first to be proven,
are my new found ways.

Things you need to see,
are things I need to show.
New things I've come to be,
are old things which I know.

In your heart
is a love for me,
In my heart
I believe forever to be.

Uncommon paths crossed,
I believe certainly
is a sure sign,
of our destiny.

Two people
from different minds;
so much to offer,
so much to find.

In my heart
a love rings true,
a love that exists
only for you.
