Soul eater

I am who I am. I write poetry and paint really badly. Please be patient.

I can’t help but admire

How cold hearted you became.

Is it to everyone or have

You just frozen me out.


I’m on the other side

Of the stick now,

I see the way I made you feel

When I betrayed you.


You’ve just hurt me more

Than I could ever hurt you.

I don’t understand!

Are you just taking revenge?


I’m racing to find words

Whispered in the night that

Might give a clue,

Maybe I could have known about this.


I am alone, I’ve only noticed

The truth of it now.

Previous times were different,

Now there is truly no one left.


How do I know where to go?

How do I know who to trust?

Emotions just bring pain,

Remove it, let it go, who needs it anyway?

Thank you!

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on June 20, 2019:

I can feel your pain. So often one gets taken by surprise, not knowing how one feels after being betrayed.

A person can change after being betrayed to having a heart of stone, the love just not quite the same.

Good expression.
