Betrayal, Decanto Issue 70

My poem Betrayal is featured in Decanto Magazine, issue 70, which has just been released. This is a publication from the U.K. featuring poets from around the globe. I’m very honored to be published there.

You can check out issue 70 here.



We lie in bed and wonder
will it ever be safe
to dream again
And what would we dream of
when there is no love left
to hold us together,

only false memories
shot full of holes
with no thread of hope
that we might wake up
in a better place
anywhere but here

The lies I told
soak deep into your skin
leaving a stain that remains—
a permanent mark
carried into old age
never to be worn away
