Should have trusted the feeling.
The one that gave the real truth
with only the changing air
as evidence of wrong doing.
Denial was in my mind.
No person with years of trust
would cut for the blood
of a person that was like a brother.
That is what my mind would say.
Was so completely wrong.
Question the reasons that made him change.
Was it envy, jealousy of fortune
that was earned through work?
Nothing is given in this jaded world.
I may never tell what I know
to the last blood brother.
Will have an open weary eye
and try a slow forgiveness
from feeling the strike of a Betrayer's Sword.
