A Bewildering Betrayal
When first I saw her on that day,
the subtle way she looked at me,
I felt that we were meant to be.
I thought we’d walk down life’s pathway,
and tantalize stroll through love’s door;
we’d take the plunge for evermore.
Our bond forever to portray
together joined no matter what,
we’d share together our life, but
I never thought she would betray
fallacious image of our love,
eviscerate bond from above.
But lures of life lead her astray
down vortex of the dark of night,
bewilder our love with this blight.
And here behind I sadly stay
with scarlet visions giving chase,
as salty tears stream down my face.
When first I saw her on that day
I thought we’d walk down life’s pathway;
our bond forever to portray.
I never thought she would betray,
but lures of life lead her astray,
and here behind I sadly stay.
