Betrayal In Love

Betrayal In Love

written by: Ger White

 

When they met, when his quiet voice lulled
When he said he loved her carefree ways
And admired her moves, her shoes, her style
When on her breasts his eyes would glaze

He seemed to come alive in their “love”
She was so glad to see him smile
Did not realise it was her, her, her
Who brightened his dull world a while

And as the flies feed off their prey
And vultures gather greedily
He took what he could and walked away
Left her bereft and lost to bleed

But grass will push through any crack
With help from good books and caring friends
With lies torn away and real truths shared
She kept showing up and is on the mend

First truth to learn is – know thyself!
Only from there can we grow and serve

Gerardine White - (also called Ger) grew up in wild open country of West Limerick, Ireland. Her country life is represented in her poems and has a strong bearing on her core values and education. She inherited the skill of poetic rhyme from both of her parents and her Grandad. This past year she was published in four Anthologies from Clarendon House Publications. Some of her poems will already have appeared in Ballyguiltenane Rural Journal over time. She had the pleasure of spending an evening with Seamus Heaney in Dublin in 2011. It was later very humbling to read a testimonial of her work:
“Your poetry reminds me of Seamus Heaney” (Grant Hudson - Clarendon House Publications)
"Poems by Ger have the ability to lift the soul and bring it to a place of peace and calm"
(Peg Prendeville, Poet. - The Purple Pencil)
