Shadow in Your Eyes

Samuel Malik Canty: the Word Bird. I am the author of Five Poetry Books, I understand my Purpose, and my words are my proof...



I saw it in your eyes, and it hurt me…

How could you? Why would you?

Dupe me, double cross me, and betray me?

I guess maybe I am a bit too sensitive, after all Judas had to have descendants too, I just never thought one would be you…

Thirty pieces used to be the going rate…What did it take to get you to betray the trust, the bond, and the kindness that I always had reserved for you?

I saw it in your eyes, it’s too late to deny, and I only want to know why?

Betrayal has inflicted and impeded the progress of Nations; it is Satan’s most powerful weapon…

When it hits home, you know the devil is on the roam.

I saw its shadow in your eyes, all I want to know is why?

I believed in you, I stood by you, until time revealed the real you.

Now all I see is an enemy...
