Betrayed

As night falls innocence fades
Vanished, stolen, stripped away
Yesterday; unblemished, carefree
Today; friend becomes enemy

Trapped amidst churning hell
Struggling for freedom, barricaded cell
Shoulders too young this burden to bear
Head hung in shame, fraught with care

Battered, bruised, shaken, torn
Trust misplaced, exchanged for scorn
Blameless heart indelibly marked
Treachery launched, poisonous dart

Sunrise, sunset, the cycle repeats
Healing flows through each heartbeat
Time remains her precious ally
Salve to wounds as days pass by

    Is this about your daughter’s friend? You certainly have alot of passion in your work! Have a great day! 😉

  2. Yes, it is about her. My heart breaks for what she must be going through. I wrote from what I thought her perspective might be.
