Love's Betrayal

Love betrayed in quiet desperation
All the endless years of preparation
Facing this invisible destruction
Belief unbound and structures
Found to sink into the sands
When love itself is banned
By minds of men
And then the desperation grows
In intervals too unexpected to seem real

The others that they love can feel
Their quiet desperation -
Lingering within betrayal
As loss of love becomes
A universal feel of desperation
Fight or flight, but never stand your ground
Don't attempt communication of the truth
This time around

Something is better than nothing, they say
But they have never dared to feel the loss
Involved within the heart of love's betrayal...
