Betrayal Poem

Poem About First Love Leaving For Someone Else

I wrote this poem during what felt like one of the darkest times in my life. I was 17, struggling with managing my depression, and I lost the person who became my anchor to my little sister. Time healed the wound, but it was still so raw as I penned these words. Now it serves as a reminder that my past does not define me. There will be better times and worse times, but I've gotten through every hard time I've faced yet, and I've come out stronger in the end.

From Pain


Published by Family Friend Poems June 2016 with permission of the author.

I was blinded by you,
My jewel, my gem,
Precious treasure I held near my heart.

With each word you said,
You drew me in closer.
Closer and closer until I fell in love.

But my love wasn't enough for you,
Was it?
So you had to run to the love of another.

Another so close it hurt me at each turn,
Someone I call a friend, her name is "sister."

I never understood why.
How could you do this to me,
Knowing that at any moment I wanted to take my life?

Knowing that I would sacrifice anything for you?
The one who intoxicated me so,
Made me lose myself completely.

You were the center of my world,
The ground that I walked on.
I worshiped you with all of my being.

And to repay me,
You turned around and stabbed me through my heart,
Into the soul of the girl I am.

But that is the past.
The wounds
Are starting to fade,

And day by day
I no longer obsess over you
Or what you put me through.

I've learned to forgive
And open my heart again,
But I'll never forget,

Because what you did
Has changed my life.
It has made me a better person.

For that, I can never repay you.
I will always love you,
But it is time to let go.
