A SHORT POEM ABOUT THE DAGGER OF BETRAYAL GIVEN BY THOSE WHO WE LOVE..

Concious of the pain,
Within my flesh it sits.
To numb the pain I train,
But still my flesh it slits.

It's sharpened blades mock,
They cut through bone and all.
My bodie's in a state of shock,
I'm on wobbly feet fearing to fall.

The cut was deep,
But the problem is the knife.
It sit's inside me as I weep,
Still destroying flesh and life.

A dagger of death bestowed upon me,
Driven by a beautiful maiden I trusted.
Though the dagger one cannot see,
It is there, deeply wounding and rusted.
