Betrayed By Myself
Author: Christina


Who am I fooling?
I tried so hard to pretend
I didn’t care about you, that
I was happy you left without a reason
~I believed I wasn’t hurt by you
that I was better off anyways,
that I wouldn’t miss your lips on mine
~I remember one of our first conversations
You told me you'd probably end up
hurting me anyways, so it makes
the pain my own fault
~The tears I cry and
angry words I speak about you
are because I tried when you
said I shouldn't. I can realize
that I betrayed myself
~The only things I can hold
you accountable for are the lies
you told me, even after you preached
you were honest and always said
how you matter what
~I want to heal and I want
to forget the pain. but I do not want to forget
you. You gave me so much, and
I thank you for that.

I was betrayed by friends but your case is more neurotic

Your poetry is sincerely deep. Reminds me of mine " Trus is Your Only Enemy" , a poem I wrote when heartbreak was kissing me with a gun held to my head. The poem is on this site, just incase you want to comment. Thanks for sharing your world with us...Jjames Amuta , Enugu, Nigeria
