Once significant and alluring, your luster faded. Perhaps it was the treachery in hollow eyes jaded. Was there ever a light in a soul dark as night? Promises of love only heralded grief; faith I once had turned to disbelief. She was younger, pretty, but above all newer. Agony in my heart came from betrayal’s skewer. How could I blame her when I knew that soon your allegiance would change like the inconstant moon? She would then feel the fickle pitchfork of pain - those knots in her stomach twisted by emotions feigned. Only now can I see you for what you are. Anger settled; no longer do we spar. Bitterness made way for resignation again. Maybe I shall once more learn to trust men. Then I can guide your latest castaway and ease the surging sting of her dismay. Your fate rests on a tremulous shore where, as looks fade, you can offer nothing more.

    Wow Carolyn, this one packs a much deserved punch. People like that should have their hearts broken and one day as you say, when looks fade, that may happen. This is beautifully written my friend! I wish you and yours a very happy Thanksgiving!

    I'm hoping the words that you've penned is only fantasy, for a beauty of a soul as yours must be heartfully broken. Sometimes I feel that there is so much meanness in some men. My heart is breaking for you beautiful lady, he'll get his in the end. Sending you many hugs your way Carolyn.... hugs Eve

    It takes courage to share this. A painful experience. Makes Trust become almost impossible. No one gets away with hurting someone as beautiful as you.

    Loved this poem Carolyn, we have all had this experience, yet when younger I decided not to be caught in this situation ever again, I simply decided that since I was honorable that if I couldn't hold someone that I was very close to, then no one could...
