The Essence Of Betrayal
by G E P
Did I make you so radiantly unhappy
as to wander,
perhaps even glide,
to a tacit rendezvous?
Can your soul reckon the unmitigated ache
when I sorely attempt forgetting
the thick, keen tears?
That you found bliss without me
I can perhaps brook; but realize
I, also, do know the exquisite,
unique pain of a shattered heart.
