The stab of betrayal is sharper than any knife.
It cuts through the heart and the brain and makes the weak question their life.
It comes from those most beloved, and is by far the worst offense.
The one who commits this irrevocable crime is not masked or gloved.
He simply took your love and trust, twisted it, and made you a fool.
It's severity as a sin surpasses lust as the tears it caused form a bottomless pool.
Though it comes in many forms, it always feels the same.
Your heart is constricted by a snake of thorns and your hope, trust, and love lie slain.
Though it feels like a killing blow, it can only cause temporary pain.
It causes a valley in your life infinitely low until you once again rise and are the same.
