Poem #315 of 365

A betrayal from the other room
looms on the tray and
you are asked to swallow

something you would
never care to taste,

and your throat
feels clogged
with the pain
and embarrassment

of a decision
forced upon you,

but the bitterness lingering
now in your heart
will take much
longer to digest,

breaking bread together
fatefully changed
a full-course meal
into the rotten bite of
trust breaking apart.
