Cornered - Poem by chantelle ribeiro

They made you a liar
its foulness spewed from your lips
Too late
Your betrayal was brutal
They got what they expected
Me, what I did not deserve
How cruel you had to be, right?
How convincing
You lost although you don't know it
Or maybe you do?

Desperate people say desperate things
Holding on to what you consider normal
Afraid of your own heart
Digging your own grave
Losing the one person who understood you
You lost, you know
Big time
I on the other hand
will never be a victim again
Never yours
Never theirs

A thing without a backbone
It must rip you apart inside
Or does it?
I don't know you anymore
I don't think I could bare it
You will never know now
how contentment feels
The light will disappear from your eyes
Extinguishing the fire in your soul

Disappointed by your character
I shall remain your biggest mistake
Your mystery to end all mysteries
Your bitter-sweet
Your conscience on rainy days
And you
You will be my life's lesson
A permanent bruise
on the pure surface of my soul
