Betrayal comes with surprise
Shock and awe of the possibility
That one called friend
Lies so easily and brazen
Trust is gone, probably never there
Betrayer is who they were all along
We just didn't know it.
Good wins out. The proof is in the pudding. So they say.
Just wait and see.
Next time, betrayal comes alone.

Widowed 11/10/12 after 35 years of marriage
In a sense now, I am homeless. For the home, the place of refuge, solitude, love-where my husband lived-no longer exists. Joyce Carolyn Oates, A Widow's Story
