Forsaken Loyalty

By Wonda Pharr

You never understood my loyalty;
Instead, you took it to be modesty;
I’ve always asked why you cheated,
But all the answers just leave me defeated.

Back then I was always a ball of anxiety,
But no matter what, I always gave you my priority;
How could I know that you were so conceited,
When all along you made me feel so completed.

You didn’t have a clue about my loyalty,
You must have thought it was just poetry,
And so you let me get so utterly mistreated,
When here I thought that I would never be unseated.

You gave me not a shred of honesty,
And so you lost ever bit of my loyalty.
Like sweat from me you’ve been secreted,
And now it’s time for you to be deleted.
