Betrayed by My Own Tears (1)

(Written at age 16.)

Betrayed by my own tears
That, flowing down,
Speak of broken promises,
Of long lost pain now found.

Wrapped in naught but agony,
Nude I feel; exposed.
Blame befitting no one,
For never was i forced.

Hurt I did myself,
No matter the tool;
Be it by my own hands,
Or through life another, I was the fool.

Well deserved comes this suffering,
And, I daresay, I welcome the fears,
How then can I complain that
I've been betrayed by my own tears?
