A.N.: I was mad at a friend and very upset when I wrote this. So I apologize.

1 Betrayal

After betrayal, sometimes forgiveness comes

But if forgiven, it is usually forgotten

It returns, darker than ever

It shadows life, growing larger

Swallowing all things positive until

All that’s left is the darkness…

The darkness of pain

The darkness of betrayal

The darkness that was once the light

The light that was beauty

The light that was grace

The light that was love

But instead there’s darkness…

No hope, no solace

Just pain, sorrow

The healing light will never come

The darkness will stay

Betraying nothing

For there is nothing left to betray
