Betrayal

You have betrayed me

you have betrayed our love

and you have betrayed yourself

by giving your body to others

especially those who did not treat you

with kindness and understanding

those who did not know who you truly are

those who kept you trapped into your fears

and your past and your lies

Of course, they each helped you grow too

as each experience in life teaches us something

And yet, it does not make such experiences acceptable any longer

because the pain they bring is too great

the betrayal too deep

Being with someone physically without loving him truly

is like willingly stepping into a lie against yourself

and is an obstacle between you and happiness

you and true love

you and me

Let go of the past now

right those you have wronged

tell the truth to everyone around

and with your tenderness and your love

repair the pain you have brought in me
