Replaced By Suspicion

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

It was stated to them then,
How they underestimated...
Feelings that had been readily given.

It was reminisced and revisited,
What one thought had been unconditional...
Was conditionally betrayed on a daily basis.

Sincere tears then began to swell and fall,
From puffed eyes.
As if wishing to erase time.

Yet inside one's heart those lies once told...
Seem to fix and take hold.
Never to go away!

'You don't know how I have changed my ways! '

~You have no idea how much has changed...
Acceptance has been replaced by suspicion.~
