Imagine sharing the secrets to a lover’s heart.
Confiding the opportunity to a lifelong dream.
A dream money cannot buy.
Trust, carelessly assumed,
And a best friend’s betrayal!
Something broods when deepest secrets are divulged
Something festers when one’s dream is hijacked
How it bites and nibbles at conscience
A vigilante seeking justice
An itch demanding to be scratched
What happens when a grievance runs too deep
Entrenched in memory
And wedged in perspective
A mortal wound that can’t be cauterised
Stitches that can’t be disinfected
The only cure for sure is what vengeance can provide
And the satisfaction of wielding karma like a blade
It is said that vengeance is a double edged sword
But you long for that pain.
Compared to the one you feel,
You crave its searing pleasure
And the demolition of a treacherous foe
Cockatoo in a cage
Like vengeance, she sets you free
But you will not leave
Are there grievances too deep to forgive?
I’d love to hear from you.
I hope you are all safe.
Stay loving, and forgive but learn.
