On a sepulcher
A gift unto myself

My shame

Disciples one,two three;
A flicker of torches in the breeze
Then,betrayal with a kiss-
Could thirty ducats be worthy of this.

The Pain Of Betrayal

O, I speak the tongue
That you understand,
But, when a betrayal
Distracted my spirits,
Fires engulf my soul!

I run into solitude,
In my room, thinking…
Why you have hurt me?

Love in 30 words

Love, a curse
An emotion irremovable in our lives
Pain, suffering, betrayal, and wet eyes
Love, a blessing
Magnifying feelings of lust and belonging
Hiding faults and inspiration for improving

Short Betrayal poem by Frank F. Atanacio| Details |


Her eyes wide,
her chin fell,
she couldn’t hide,
the hurt inside,
and he could tell,
that she wouldn’t understand,
why he was in bed,
with another man,
and this was her tale,
of another betrayal.

Short Betrayal poem by Justin Debrosse| Details |


Mercury nights unrelieved
betrayal passionately suggests
Our future- parallel in jest
From jumping many potholes
Freewheeling college enterprises
Found my candle beside a manhole
Your tongue is dirty like fame

Short Betrayal poem by Rhia Madison Thomer| Details |

Thirty Coins

I felt the ghost of your kiss
along my cheek,
behind you I heard
coins drop, counted;
one to thirty.
My eyes widened
as you slunk the knife
into my back.
Your kiss bit into my lips,
a taste of betrayal.

Loving Hearts

Short Betrayal poem by J B| Details |

no goodbye

there is no goodbye

expressed in any way
which cuts me deep
and wounds my heart

like a betrayal
of emotions shared
felt by one
and one alone

The Kiss

The deep
Voice of His holy eyes
Was this sea of calm
I planted the kiss to Him
He whispered in my ear that
A betrayal was on the horizon
Then, I quietly sit to the right of Him
Taking full communion of this last super

Short Betrayal poem by Katherine Pittman| Details |

Now Broken

Once a trusting soul
Now broken
Betrayal just the start
Lies to follow

Once an open heart
Now Broken
Lost is her innocence
Taken without consent

Her spirit was carefree
Now Broken
Life dragged her through
With no remorse

Shock after 6 months

Pure love filled two souls.

My Kiss

by Walks In Shadows
(Motif: spiritual)

Let me kiss your face,
Oh beautiful child,
Before the crack of the whip,
Before a sponge touches your lip,
Before the betrayal you will sip,
Before your blood must drip,
Lord, can you feel this?
It’s my kiss.

Short Betrayal poem by Natalie Sands| Details |

Windows To death

Windows to death often open to me,
I have every opportunity,
To die without pain,
To cry without tears,
To take away the years
Of lies and betrayal,
But still I am unable,
To take my own life,
Because of my will,
To beat the pain and to heal.

Short Betrayal poem by Christy Hardy| Details |

Always The Same

Your heart is  a mystery,
as a canyon is deep,
the sunlight caresses,
many secrets from me.
Generous with gifts,
always something new,
where are your memories,
hidden from view.
A smile of betrayal,
reveals such pain,
always nothing,
always the same.

Sword and Shield of God For Family

He is only a sword and shield when you do what is right for man,
Otherwise he runs the other way and as fast as he possibly can!
He will not tolerate betrayal, lies or any form of deceit you do,
So do not count on his sword and shield when you life reflects POO!

Short Betrayal poem by Teresita Cailo| Details |

Lost Dream

Thorn pierced to your heart
Betrayal of love
Mercy cry heard loud,
You're unforgiving
Trust I broke, sinner.

Pleading eyes now
Hoping for light
But sun you hide
Vanishing still.

Head tilted,
Farewell sign
My hands lame.

Tears peek
To lost

                                                  ADULTEROUS TRYST

                                                   Mountain fog
                                                Descends on betrayal
                                                    Steals the kiss

Short Betrayal poem by John Allen| Details |


Bruised angered heart
languidly torn apart
ripped inside out
through trouble and doubt
why do you love so much
when all you know is betrayal's deceitful touch
is it because to stop beating
means turning back and retreating
from another day without a lover's crutch

Short Betrayal poem by Jeanne Berger| Details |

The Beast

Burning, burning, the breath of the beast
Beating, beating, the heart of the beloved
The beast beset a black-hearted betrayal
Bestowed by the beast upon the beloved
The bellowing, unbelieved by the beloved
Boundaries bitten, bonds broken
Becoming a beast, to the beloved

Short Betrayal poem by Juli- Michelle| Details |

Silver meets Red

There's a sweet taste of oblivion
That echoes when silver meets red
Through the lips of everlasting liars
Who secretly imagine you as dead
And a look of utter betrayal 
As the clock strikes the chime of one
To know that You're merely a teenager
And, child, your life has merely begun

Short Betrayal poem by richard holmes| Details |

turbulent grounds

As i walk on the earth's turbulent turf, Iook back on events that occurred after my 
birth.  I dealt with what i felt was the worst and starved after being over-worked.
Relationships aren't safe because betrayal lurks.  You can't trust what wears 
skirts, earrings and carries a purse.

Short Betrayal poem by Gregory Golden| Details |

For Thirty Shekels of Gold

on that last day of super
we dine with Jesus

i sat at His right hand
he always knew

that the flesh is 
weak in man

He look at me again
fresh eyes journeyed into my soul

there to find the reason
for the unholy betrayal

my soul replied in broken tears
for thirty shekels of gold

Short Betrayal poem by Krissy Ward| Details |

Reality Check

The ultimate betrayal:
The giving of body and soul.
Enjoy those stolen kisses 
Before your actions take their toll.
Hearts aren't unbreakable 
And nothing is free.
Most good things
Just aren't meant to be.
Something better
Doen't just come along,
Not unless your life is a cheesy love song.

Short Betrayal poem by Elizabeth Skiba| Details |

The Day After

His touch
His kiss
His hugs
Don’t miss

His silent
His violent
I hate

His lies
And betrayal 
Those tears
Empty nights

He left
Heart was broken
And than I was free

To go
And to try
To do different things

To search
And to find
And spread 
Broken wings

To reach
And to do
So many new things

Short Betrayal poem by Jill Martin| Details |

To Shoot a Friend

Self righteous piety reeks like a blanket of wet dog hair,
odoriferous and foul.
My friend.
Sagging spirit like a pillowcase of drowned kittens.
For what profit to you?
At what cost to me?

We walk this same earth.
Pray your moccasins do not cross the balance point of the universe.

Short Betrayal poem by Marty Owens| Details |

Worse When Betrayed by Family

It hurt very bad.
When land was taken away.
Betrayal complete.
Land is not worth it.
Land surveyor wonders why,
Reasons were selfish.
Just give least amount.
For granting right of way road
Cannot build house now.
Don't want to live there.
Too close to my family.
The ones who betrayed.

Short Betrayal poem by Arnold Mutugi| Details |

My Wife is in Love With Another Man

She said it, yesterday,
That she is in love
With a


Ironically, it did not breed in me
A feeling of:

Resentment nor
Ravenous-ness nor
Jealousy nor
Jeopardy nor
Betrayal nor

Because I was the other man
A transformed soldier of my wife
