The closest people in our lives carry the gift of our trust. It takes a lot to give someone trust as it makes us vulnerable to the things that we are afraid of. Once you have given someone your trust, you rely that your trust will be taken cared of, because once they lost it is hard to get it back. Betrayal is one of the hardest obstacles to go through in a relationship. It is a terrifying thing to face because it will be hard to look at that person in the same way again and put your trust back again.

Betrayal Of Love – Poem by Crimson Love
My first taste of betrayal,
was one to not be forgotten,
Betrayed by the one whom was the one I could confide,
Ripping at the sewn bits of my heart….
She betrayed me……
My lover…..my friend,
the one whom held my love,
Caught upon a bed of deceit she lie there with someone,
whom wasn’t me,
My eyes fill with sadness, a look of regret,
she stares back into my eyes, apoligetic…distraught,
How can this happen, when I’ve given everything,
Tears trickle down my crimson face,
I wasn’t good enough, I’ve been replaced,
She held my heart, and had a choice,
The lust of another or the everything I have,
she chose wrong,
Betrayal – Poem by Valsa George
Secure within the mother’s womb.
Sheltered from all storms of life.
The countdown begun-
A wide world awaiting,
Eager faces looking,
Taste and Touch.
Chopped to pieces,
Down to trash.
‘The most unkindest cut of all’!
‘Am I my brother’s keeper’?
The Son of Man –
with a kiss.
Et tu, Brute!
Beloved’s Betrayal – Poem by bakuli bhakali
No Betrayal – Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal
Love and betrayal
it is an inseparable part for any individual
it results when someone plays a dual role
and down the shutters with a desperate call
the rejection of love is not at all betrayal
it may be due to dismal show
or things don’t move with our desires
and love eventually runs out of track
love still reigns
and gains upper hand
if things, later on, improve
and prove the desirability with an honesty
love has its specific angle
and makes you struggle
rough weather makes it impossible
and you stand discourages as defeated individual
so never feel bitter
love has charm and harms never
you have happy days ahead
you are well received and read
The Betrayal – Poem by Joanne Monte
Today the drapes, for once,
have been drawn and, at last,
the sun has lit up the pine-dark interiors
of that day you poured me wine at supper,
I need now acknowledge.
I had failed to notice then,
how subtly your fingers had lifted the knife
to skin the lamb,
you had cut through the leanest part
of the bone, the precious flesh
ripped open and steaming. I had failed to notice
how the table’s solid sheet of maple reflected
the sharp glimmer of the blade
and the rapid gutting,
and how, afterward, you devoured the rare meat,
wanting to strip everything clean,
the wine spilling over like blood.
It was your last supper,
the room abandoned
and the drapes drawn, but still clinging
to the one ray of light in the window
as though it could reach into those dark corners
and deflect the desire for vengeance.
A Betrayal – Poem by Shelley Sims
If I had but one wish I would give it to you.
For you see, there is nothing in my life I wish to undo.
Every mountain climbed and road journeyed down
Has made me the person who stands before you now.
At the many mistakes I did make,
Oh at the countless wrong turns did I take.
So from these things I now glean,
May I ask you just one thing?
Who are you to judge my life
And determine what’s wrong and what’s right?
For every decision I’ve made has defined who I am
And it’s not your place to pass judgment on the race that I’ve ran.
Rather, let me hold up the mirror so you may clearly see
How each one of your negative comments further separates you from me.
At first you look away, you don’t even try.
Could it be that you would rather believe a lie?
Conviction slowly builds up inside
And you soon realize this is something from which you can no longer hide.
And what is it in that mirror in which you see?
Do you see the truth of who you really are in all its monstrosity?
Tears begin to fill your eyes and then soon you see
That this whole time it was about your own pain and never me.
I forgive you for the pain you have caused my heart.
I only wish you could have been genuine from the start.
The time has come for us to part ways.
I pray you know and accept the truth for the rest of your days.
However, for the lies you told
I pray all hell unfolds
To devour your black and wretched soul.
