Broken Faith - Poem by Stephanie L. Amos

Your smile used to warm my heart;
Now my heart feels broken apart. I trusted you to no end;
I don't even know where to begin. In the beginning we were close friends;
The trust and commitment had no end. I let you into my life and my heart;
Why, oh why would you tear it apart? In you I always saw good;
even when no one else would. That lost look of hurt in your eyes, drew me to
love you and make all your demons die. You cried and begged for my help, I ran to you
as fast as I could;
Feeling for some reason that I should. I gave you my heart, my love, my trust;
Then you did what you must. I wish I knew the meaning of why you needed-
to possess my thoughts, my needs, my desires-
then to turn and walk away and make me look like a liar. The depth of our love will never end;
It also saddens me-it will never begin;
After all you were never even my friend. A once-in-a-lifetime feeling of faith;
Twisted, torn and taken away.
