Betrayal - Poem by Kaila George

How can one fathom
A person to be true

In what they say
In what they do
You believe
Every thing they do

You embrace them with love
You give them your trust
You think you really know them
Only to learn its not the truth

Your heart breaks
When your faced with all
The decite and all the lies
Perhapes thats
All they really know
And it breaks your heart in two

Somewhere deep inside
The soul just needs a friend
To rely on and trust in
To help them in their hour of need

But what you think is their love
and what you think is their trust
Only turns out to be Betrayal
That breaks your heart in two

Do you stand next to them
Even though they turn away

Do you try and reach out to them
Will they even reach your helping hand
Who knows what they think
Or what they mean is truth
Ill just wait here in the background
To be a friend in need

And hope that they can see
They have a friend in me

    A well-written poem. Many people are traitors. I have been betrayed more than I can count by opportunistic girls. If you lack friends all over the place, give me a shout and we'll mend the cracks...Hahaha! JK. (Report) Reply

    A friend in need is a friend indeed. A friend indeed is almost the equal of a good and happy family. Anyone who has found a good friend has found a rare gem. It's a pity that after so much trust and love shown to enemies wearing the masks of friendship we get betrayed at last. A good write. (Report) Reply

    Sometimes what one sees as betrayal is not. Sometimes it is letting another grow. Sometimes it is turning away from self and not from you. and Perhaps...what you feel is betrayal is a feeling in another of falling into an abyss so deep and dark that the soul is lost for a brief moment...Reach out....she is waiting...bearhugs (Report) Reply
