Betrayal And Forgiveness
Author: Charmaine


Been hurt and lied to once,
Never thought it'll happen again.
Sold out by my best friend,
One whom I trusted most.

Never in my wildest dreams,
Have I imagined this would happen.
What's done cannot be undone,
No history can be erased.

But understand that no amount of apologies,
Can take the pain away.
No amount of remorse,
Can take away the sorrow.

The hurt has been caused,
The tears have been cried.
The heart has been shattered,
The soul has been broken.

I can forgive,
But it's hard to forget.
I'll try my best,
But I just need time to heal.

But how can I ever trust you now,
What if I set myself for heartbreak again?
I won't be able to take another blow,
But still I'm taking a chance, a leap of faith.

Don't make me any promises,
It's still too premature.
I dont want another repetition,
Of broken dreams and trust.

I don't know if what I'm doing is right,
But all I know is you mean too much to me.
I don't want to see this friendship end like this,
I need you more than you ever can imagine.

------- Author's Notes -------

I trusted. I got hurt. I never thought it would happen again. I trusted. I got hurt. The second time was worse. But still I forgave... Still I forgave.

Trust no more then

Hey girl! If you got hurt twice, that should tell you something. Trust no more. You gave this person a second chance and they blew it. That right there says that they aren't reliable at all. Nevertheless, you've got heart...that's what I admire. Isn't it sometimes hard to forgive? Beautiful outpour Charmaine! Your poem is on fire!
