Betrayal – Day 2 of National Poetry Writing Month #NaPoWriMo

Betrayal – Day 2 of National Poetry Writing Month #NaPoWriMo

My second poem for National Poetry Writing Month is Betrayal.


I thought we were a team, you and me
I thought you had joined our family tree
All the things you were saying about me
They lead to your betrayal

When we first started I was full of hope
But our love became a kaleidoscope
It soon went down a slippery slope
So full of your betrayal

Little did I know that there were others
When you told me you were at your mothers
I should have listened to my sisters and brothers
I overlooked your betrayal

I started to see and I grew strong
I needed to move up and move on
Now I’m happy, found a love lifelong
I left behind your betrayal

    Just brilliant. I wish you hadn’t had to write this from personal experience but I suppose that’s where the strength of emotion comes from xox

    I can’t believe how fast the time is flying by this year, I’m so sorry I’m so lagging behind with visits & comments xox

      Thank you Sarah. I do find the easiest way to write poetry is from personal experience x
