Betrayal Poems

Poems about When A Lover Betrays You

The feeling of being in love is so intense that it feels like it will last forever. We can't believe that the other person doesn't feel the same way. We can't believe that this sacred relationship has been betrayed. You may have been sure that you were in the same wavelength and that you understood each other. Meanwhile, you have been walking on parallel and eventually divergent tracks the entire time. The feelings of betrayal and hurt may take many years to heal.

    Stealing emotions, making him weak.

    Poem On Being Unfaithful

    I have seen women lifted by love,
    Countless women surrounded, fed, embraced by love,
    But most recently I have met a woman condemned by love,
    Alienated, starved, forgotten by love.
