Unsafe Harbor – A Quadrille

Unsafe Harbor

You promised to love me

and to protect me always

Through thick and thin

for the rest of our days


However you lied to me

and my heart was broken

I harbor no ill will toward you, but

another word will never be spoken

    harboring no ill will is the best healing for the betrayal

    Broken promises, betrayal, how can the heart not harbor ill will? We’ve all been there.

    Oh…..the lover who betrayed….the safe harbor that proves its true colors and hurts, and scars. This is a sad tale you’ve wrought here. It is the healing that takes the time. . . and somehow getting one’s moorings back . . . to be secure in the floating as an island so to speak.
