The Betrayal



Just you wait

Until he betrays you, too

You think he won’t

You think this time it will be different

Just as you did the last

And the time before

But they always do


You cannot lie in wait for it

You can only trust

Even while you know you will be broken


You cannot stop the breach

You can only love as well you can

Paving stones of forgiveness

And praying for strength when it comes

For it is in who we are

After the betrayal

That all is told of us
