About the Poem

She claimed she left because she was losing her sense of self. There was only me, and us, and never her. Or so she said. It wasn't until later I discovered there was also him.

I remember feeling betrayed. She was the one woman I thought would never hurt me that way. And those feeling of betrayal grew, feeding on my anger and bitterness, until they were only a single step away from hate. I never took that final step. But it was close.

The Eighth Deadly Sin

If it's a sin to love,
Then I've sinned an awful lot;
I've hated when I should've loved,
And loved when I should've not.

Someday I'll try to figure out
Which class you should be in:
Did I hate when I should've loved,
Or is misplaced love still my sin?

It is never wrong to love. Being betrayed is bitter but remembering the beauty of the past is the power to make you go forward. sad poem.
i completely understand because i am going throught the same feelings. i can only hope to move foward even though it seems like thats no where near
as a poet myself, this is wonderful. i recently lost the person i shared my life with to another. reading this, made me realize exactly how i felt about the whole situation. thank you for putting into words what i myself could not.
I loved it!-thank u for sharing your talent with me.My prayers are with you,good luck!:)
