Betrayal

It isn’t always obvious.

It’s a shadow that creeps up behind you,

Slapping you multiple times in the face.

All at once


I didn’t notice the shadow till now.

Maybe it was so small that I couldn’t see, or…

Or maybe I just chose to ignore it


Maybe it was so blatantly obvious to every one but me.

I was blind.

It only followed me, so I thought I must’ve been special

It felt so good to be the centre of something’s attention.


But did it really care?

It’s a shadow for a reason.

What’s beneath it isn’t apparent

All that’s hidden within is its selfishness

It leeches off your support and gives little back
