It hurt to watch your longing vanish.
Trust splintered. Vanquished. Torn apart.
My only comfort crushed in anguish,
Unspeaking raged this broken heart.
I can’t forgive. Is this to be my fate?
Punishing. Gaoled. Cruel in demise.
Unable to endure disloyalty, wait
For time to wipe away this web of lies.
My everydayness all its shimmer lost.
Resentment simmers. Fury’s gale
Cuts to the bone as if in wintery frost
It writ this story of betrayal.
