Betrayed

Picture Credit: Google Images

Intrigues

Abandoned by love and business failures
Of Romeo and Juliet, of young lovers
As Shakespeare would have it rightly flavoured
A tragedy of sorts that long hovers

Outwardly seen and seemingly oblivious
Of what outcome on unpaved lanes
Isn’t it out in the open, and pretty obvious
Wrought with sorrow and lots of pain!

Cast a blind eye and sadden with laughter
Regretfully betrayed in a web of intrigues
Wild flashes and staccato bursts of gunfire
Enemies within hidden but well in league

  1. Betray can sting and sadness it sure does bring. Just hope no kind of pain makes me pop a vein, that would hurt. So with sadness I'd rather flirt.
