Amrita Mallik (Category-Poem) (Betrayal | Certificate of Appreciation)

Like the victim of the acid attack

Shocked and surprised by the sudden act

Betrayal comes as a complete jolt

It awakens you from your stupor

And bursts the bubble of faith

You’re happily living in.

The deadliest enemy doesn’t back stab

A fake friend however, easily double-crosses.

Underneath the masks that the men hide

It’s baffling to get hold of a pure soul.

However, several times you fall

You learn to separate milk from water!

But then, who actually betrays you?

The betrayer or you do the harm?

The sweet poison’s trap can’t be ignored

Those hugs in the hard times can be misleading

You choose to trust those smiling faces

And disregard the throbbing of your own heart.

Every betrayal is hard to get over

The hardest one comes from you to you.

Hypnotised by the glittering gold of the world

Your humble being you overlook and neglect

That’s when the devil creeps in, with tempting choices

And robs you off your joys and gradually, life.
