Betrayal: A poem

Memories surfaced, sadness it led
Mistakes made, tears they shed
Happiness to take, a lake of dread
Betrayal done and guilt it fed

Placing a bit of sand in hand
I took it then and your magic wand
Words from me, like you want
You made yourself a truthful land

Now those words shoot back at me
At that moment it shouldn’t be
Your mind took notes, unknown to see
I buy it now, how foolish of me!

Secrets placed somewhere deep
You took it out wickedly
A foolish heart, poorly leaped
It broke too fast and fell in heaps

I learned a lesson, good to me
Now seeing something, I haven’t seen
Never trust words from a place so lean
Your betrayal looming in my sea
