Kiss of Betrayal



Good Friday – the leading up to the end, for the threshold to the beginning ~ 

The kissed that was kissed only for your purpose. 
To my Lord and my God. Thank you. 



You supped with me and ate of my bread
You followed me, heard all that was said
The money bag delegated to your care
I loved you, knowing the futures snare
Many signs you witnessed with your eyes
Many wonders marvelled with surprise
To the lowly you watched, as I held them high
The outcasts you observed, I cleaved them nigh
You walked with me and shared my days
You heard my words, quoted my phrase
My inner thoughts, you were set apart to perceive
The secrets of this life given for you to believe
Welcomed you were in my inner relations
Entrusted with the keys to heavens revelations
On many occasions my loving eyes met
Your eyes, to your soul, a frequent connect
My tears, my joys, my hearts cry
You knew them all and sat solemnly by
Sweats of agony were my final feed
Yet I endorsed you to go, do your final deed
Iscariot, you were also fittingly named
Signifying the ‘dagger men’ assassinate to slain
The steward of my resources, you were chosen
However, a thief, a liar, for the money unspoken
Then suddenly, the kiss that unleashed it all
To me no surprise, I allowed the call
The deceit, the treachery, now finally unveiled
Yet, I still loved you, amid the kiss of betrayal
