Treasure Island

Betrayal


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.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
