Like A Dog’s Bite !
Down the street, you walk
Pretending everything is fine.
Headphones in and music on
You walk slowly with a smile.
Just for a moment, you think
Life is great like an old wine.
Few yards away, you see a dog
The one who used to wage its tail.
Your eyes shine a little bright
As you see your old friend.
It runs towards you
And you kneel to give a hug- tight.
But without even a warning
Gave you a scar for a lifetime.
As you lay on the ground
Figuring out what just happened.
You feel an immense pain
While blood rush through your feet.
You feel helpless and weak
Without anyone there to care.
Feel so lonely that
You can’t even cry for help.
Somehow you pick yourself up
And stand on your feet.
Stumbling down the empty street,
You lend a hand to yourself.
The feeling of betrayal
Hits you hard in your head.
The pair of injections
Didn’t hurt you at all.
As it did when the dog you feed every day
Gave you that bite.
Life is never fair.
You suffer from the ones you love.
You rather take a long way home.
Instead of walking the same road again.
Maybe this is a lesson of breach of trust.
And the dog’s bite is similar to a broken heart.
