Destiny is Synonymous with Betrayal


I feel it

Strong

The sudden surge of pain

Like a tidal wave shaking everything I knew

Betrayal wreaks

Worse than burnt rubber

Right at my back

Destiny is poised

Ready to pounce

Catch me when I least expect it

At the worst of moments

It used to be so clear

Destiny was my friend, giving me gifts

And just recently, the greatest of all

Requited emotions

Finally

I am happy

Until

The realization sharply sinks in

Like a weight dropping to the bottom

Of a shallow, lifeless pool

I can feel it

The pain

The betrayal

The dull knife sticking in my back

Destiny put it there

With her empty promises

In a single, heartless thrust

Destiny broke me

She gave me a gift

And followed it with a bombshell realization

I must go

And he must stay

Why punish him as well?

Destiny is such a cruel concept

One gift with one unbearable condition

You can't have it

You know it's there

Waiting for you

But you can't run to it

I can't run to him

Oh, that backstabbing Destiny

That knife doesn't ever come free, does it?
