It cannot be you

I rush into your arms
for vibrations of warmth and comfort

I turn my back to go my way
now the whole world knows
about my tribulations

It tells me
you're no friend
in whom I can confide

    next to losing a parent, betrayal is the most difficult emotion to endure. Vulnerability is a lovely gift to present a deserving friend or lover, but when betrayal is in the mix--it makes one feel incredibly STUPID and FOOLISH...self recrimination haunts us when we trust the wrong person....you have described this emotion well, with few words...Great write!

    It's all about engagement and exploring the art of poetry, as we cannot separate the poetry of life from the gift of living.

    A bad Friend...nice and short yet it tells a story of betrayal in my understanding

    Bad pals are there to hurt us. After betrayal one feels like a stranger in a world filled with uncertainties and frustrating shadows.
