Betrayal: An Ugly Thing

Betrayal: An Ugly Thing

A Poem by Melissa R. Schnorr
"

There was a time i betrayed someone... the only way to grasp what happened was to write it down... So i did.

"
Have you ever betrayed someone intentionally r unintentionally?
I HAVE
It happened so fast
NO TIME TO STOP AND THINK
The words come out
The action was done
BETRAYAL
Promises made; promises broken
The betrayal spoken of by an outsider
The betrayer LASHES out at another betrayer
The second betrayer showing no remorse; no guilt
FLOODED WITH QUESTIONS BUT NO ANSWERS
You clear your conscience by telling the betrayed what you have done
The betrayed asks many questions which remain unanswered.
The betrayed filled with anger, curiosity and a few choice words
IT WAS EXPECTED BY THE BETRAYED; HAVING IT HAPPEN SO MANY TIMES BEFORE
They forgive you, but that's not enough
You can't forgive yourself!

I like the last two lines of the poem the best. It's okay to write randomly sometimes...it helps express emotion and gives you ideas for other poems. Good job. Thanks. -Amy
