The Aftermath of a Betrayal

A Little Bit of Everything
3 min readMar 8, 2023

Once love was pure, like a gentle stream
Flowing freely, without any scheme
Two hearts entwined in a world of their own
A love so deep, it was a sight to be shown.

But betrayal came like a thief in the night
Stealing the love that was once so bright
The heart shattered into a million pieces
A love once pure is now tainted with creases.

The tears fell like a never-ending rain
Washing away the love’s sweet refrain
The memories lingered like a haunting ghost
A love betrayed that could never be hosted.

The pain consumed every inch of the soul
Leaving nothing, but a gaping hole
Betrayal in love, a wound so deep
A love once cherished is now forever asleep.

But even in the darkness, hope still flickers
A new love waits, with its gentle whispers
A love that’s true and will never betray
A love that’s pure and forever will stay.

As I walked through the crowded streets, I couldn’t help but feel lost in my thoughts. The weight of the betrayal I had just experienced was heavy on my heart, and it felt like a constant weight pulling me down.

I had trusted this person wholeheartedly, sharing my deepest thoughts and secrets with him. I had believed that he was my closest confidant, someone I could always count on no matter what.

But then, I discovered the truth. They had betrayed my trust the worst way possible, and it felt like a sharp knife had been plunged into my heart.

As I walked, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of numbness. The world around me seemed to be moving in slow motion, and I couldn’t shake the feeling of disappointment and anger that gnawed at my insides.

As the night fell and the streetlights flickered on, I stood alone on a deserted street corner. The world felt cold and dark, and I felt like I was standing on the edge of a cliff, looking out into the abyss.

I feel like a fool, a naive and trusting soul, for allowing myself to be vulnerable again. I give this person another chance, hoping that things will be different, hoping that he will prove himself worthy of my trust once more.

But as the days pass, it becomes clear that nothing has really changed. His promises and words are empty, and my trust in him has shattered yet again.

I feel a deep sadness and regret as if I have betrayed myself by allowing this person to hurt me again. I know that betrayal is a dead end, yet I foolishly believe things could be different.

My feelings are like a rollercoaster, with ups and downs that leave me feeling both elated and nauseous. On the one hand, I miss him terribly, longing for the warmth of his embrace and the comfort of his presence. I want him back, to try again, to see if things can work out this time.

But on the other hand, I feel a deep sense of anger and hurt, knowing that he betrayed my trust and shattered my heart. I hate him for what he did to me, for the pain and confusion that he has caused.

It’s a confusing and overwhelming mix of emotions, and I struggle to make sense of it all. One moment, I’m thinking about all the happy memories we shared together, and the next, I’m replaying the painful moments over and over in my mind.

It’s hard to know what to do or how to feel, caught between these conflicting emotions. Part of me wants to hold on, try again, and see if things can work out. But another part of me knows that it’s time to let go.

I am deeply wounded, and I’m not okay.

I write primarily for myself, sharing them with you.


Take care.
