I have written a lot of personal poetry this month, and though the admission of betrayal, whether of self, or another, I want to stick to a generic revelation, and a betrayal within the revelation. A palindrome seems most fitting as you can reading it forwards and backwards, and still get the same idea. Because like revelations and betrayal, sometimes they can be read, discovered going forward, or going back.
How's that for a deep subject, Dear Readers?
Seriously, this poem took a while to grow, and I reeeeeeeally wanted to use the palindrome poem as the form for today's poem. I hope you get something out of it.
I also took a liberty, and used different tenses in the beginning and ending of the poem. I think you'll see why...
Word prompt: betrayal, deception, dishonesty, duplicity, lying
