betrayal is a beautiful thing

it hurts like there’s no tomorrow 

it tears trust apart

 


everyone always 

gives idiotic excuses for it

 


or believes the fairy tale that 

i’m sorry makes everything

suddenly okay

 


and sometimes

it comes so unexpectedly

 


it causes you to fall

and the air to disappear 

from your lungs

 


betrayal has become a physical thing

in the eyes of the world

 


uncontrollable

inevitable

constant

 


something that happens to someone

not the act of

what someone did

 


not the act of breaking trust

 


something like a drug

intoxicating

 


like a powerful substance 

that changes who you are 

 


but it’s nothing more than

something you do

 


sometimes driven from fear

boredom

annoyance

need

or anything really 

 


betrayal is beautifully horrible
