I know it was right,
for the eons to come;
but as of this moment,
it seems wearisome.
lonely amidst a crowd,
I seem to be lost;
I still keep my smile,
but at what cost?
without a dream,
can hope be reborn?
for so many times
both I have scorned
deep from my heart
a beat betrays;
a lie that I uttered
knowingly in dismay.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. i  had really wanted to write a haiku on betrayal but had computer problems ~ now that i've read yours, i see there was no need for something from me ~ you've said it all perfectly. ♥

  2. A lie told in dismay cannot be all bad.  Of course a very honest person's heart will betray him/her.  ;;Thank you for the nice prompt.  It was a fun one.  🙂
