Daggers of Betrayal

Written by: Abdullah Jasim

Hundreds of daggers were stabbed in my back
Betrayal was the killer one, for all I was in life is nothing
Nothing more than a criminal, guilt was all around me
Yet I kept on betraying friends, and now I’m a criminal
A criminal back to isolation… Watching from far
So stab me, for all that I care about is nothing
So stab me, for now it is my turn to be stabbed
So stab me, for my back is open to daggers like mine
A story was held by me, and by me it shall be told
Yet now it’s not the time…

Broken promises spilled out from wounds of time
As my daggers suck the blood, and I held the crime…
The dagger is not in my hand, not in my mind
Daggers of betrayal are stuck in me from the inside…
Blame me, for my guilt is great, for my guilt is real
Blame me, for my pain is nothing for me to feel…
Sad…
Tears are shed, yet shut inside caused by my daggers
Feeling their pain, yet I’m the last to talk about feelers…
I can’t change, I can’t wake, I can’t live, I can’t stay
I can’t control myself, I can’t do anything, yet can betray…
They brought me from my isolation, they thought about me
They unsealed the beast, and they set the betrayer free…
Ordeal…
There’s no time to waste on me, I’m the guilty
There’s no one to defend me, it’s the reality…
I confess and I declare, for my deeds killed them
I cry alone now, in a forest of a fading lighting gem…
A gem that enlightened my path, yet I chose the dark
A gem that was a gift from them, they were the narks…
Reality…
The truth was well hidden, I was so clean
Doubts were around me, yet I was so keen…
I walked through doubts as a wolf through the snowy fields
A wolf that hates daggers, yet a dagger is what he wields…
Reality is nothing to me; for all that I am is nothing
Nothing… Just a “Coward among Others”, a coward fleeing…
Rage…
They never spoke; they just looked at me so I can understand
I understood, yet I chose to torture them to a limit that they can’t stand…
I chose my path, and now I’m holding the guilt of what I chose
I let the door behind me open; for I never left it close…
Their wrath let them loose at a lone wolf, a wolf of shame
Crimes of ages led them, and they felt the same…
Yesterday…
It was then when they decided to move, when the dagger was gone
They came and saw what they felt so sincere, the wolf was done…
For the dagger that was held between its teeth was at last stabbed
Stabbed in the back of the criminal that held the biggest crime…
