The Awdl Sonnet

Betrayed by You

by Dolly'sPoems


The sharpest thorn embedded in my soul,
and words could not console my bleeding heart;
you stole our sacred loyalty— my gold,
our worlds are now forever poles apart.

I was a fool to put my trust in you,
belief that I held true, was deeply felt,
a view held over years, that slowly grew,
by you, my friend, the blow was keenly dealt.

Despite betrayal, I forgive you dear,
for grief and loss had clearly caused this rift,
I fear that bonds will never reappear,
for too much water flowed beneath our bridge.

But I remember days when I was blind,
when words you spoke to me were always kind.

Art by Dolly

This is a deeply personal write about someone who was very close to me, and after a death in the family, I found that I was betrayed by them. The wound still hurts, but it is all water under the bridge now.
