Betrayal

hotel

Betrayal is a cruel weapon
destroying another’s trust
confidence in their own judgement
belief in mankind, betrayal
has its own karmatic reward
if the world is just.

I mourn not the loss of material goods
but the devastation of friendship
a hurt that never heals
betray me not, false friend
for surely thou will reap what thou sowest.

  1. Hi, I suggest a couple of edits: 1) change ‘materials’ to ‘material’ and 2) change the last line from “… thy will reap what thy sow” to thou wilt reap what thou lowest” to keep the language consistent. ‘Thou’ is the word for ‘you’; ‘thy’ is the word for the possessive you. Love what you do, just saying, as they say. All the best!

      Thanks for the suggestions. I seldom edit much as I post six poems ever day, one every four hours. But sometimes I catch them. I did not know the different use of thy and thou so that was helpful. hugs, pat
