Blindsided By Betrayal

By
Funny how I trusted you.
Funny how I believed you.
Let me tell you,
It's not so funny now.
No, it's not so funny now.

I trusted you.
You weren't supposed to hurt me,
You weren't supposed to lie to me.
I trusted you.

Funny how I played right in to your hand.
Funny how all I wanted was your touch.
Let me tell you,
It's not so funny now.
No, it's not so funny now.

Let me tell you this,
Your words hurt the worst.
My faith in you is gone.
You left me riddled with holes
And now the blood has begun,
Begun to run.

Oh wow. I love it. Don't worry about it sounding like 'teen angst', its just raw emotion that teens can relate to. Keep writing

when you think about it, it doesn't have to necessarily relate to a boy. it can also be a friend, a parent, anyone one becomes close to. i can definitely relate to the poem, as i have felt incredibly angry at my parents, and have also had a supposed "close friend" who has threatened to post things that she thinks makes me upset in the school yearbook. (she didn't, but she often threatens ppl... not much of a friend.)

it almost sounded like a song to me, with the "no it's no... (more »)

Okay, I get that it is drenched in teen angst, it was written in angst and I am a teenager. However, it is about more than just angst and being overly emotional. Please look deeper, just don't merely write it off because it expresses an emotion you feel is whiny. Thank you. (Please note that I don't mean to be quarrelsome or demeaning to the reviewer, I just want to address this for future readers and reviewers.)
