A Poem by Marie Harrison

A poem about betrayal.




Behaving one way in front of the eyes of another and behaving

in a complete different manner in front of the eyes of others.


Evil intentions acted out towards a confidant for the good of

one’s self and for the defeat of your confidant.


Twisting of the knife in the back of another,

 bringing death to the trust of that relationship.


Returning to a relationship as if nothing significant

happened while you were away, knowing that hell will

come when they finally discover what you did when

their back was turned.


Acting out fantasies that you’ve played in your head over and over,

knowing that those actions will cause you to pay a big price.


You choose to satisfy your own cravings and desires,

without any caution to the feelings and consequences

they will have on others.


Asking one to forgive the unforgiveable and smile when doing it.


Lying to your trusted loved one to please your

own self serving desires or needs.
