Blades in my Back

June 17, 2008

Friendship,
Caring,
Helpfulness,
Loyalty,

Trust,
Commitment,
Love,
Veracity,

Things I once thought these people had for me,
Were converted to backstabbing and dishonesty,

Regret,
Loathing,
Disbelief,
Emptiness,

Pain,
Disownment,
Depression,
Hurtfulness,

These things kill me inside and cause me much stress,
These people don’t know the power they possess,

Revenge,
Payback,
Relief,
Liberation,

Apology,
Remorse,
Guilt,
Compensation,

These are things I want (my greatest temptations),
From those responsible for my deterioration,

Unity,
Attention,
Compassion,
Involvement,

Equality,
Assistance,
Cherishing,
Acknowledgement,

I wish we shared these things, this I resent,
But when I tried, all these things, they had to prevent.
