Traitor’s Gate


By doing that you’ve crossed the traitor’s gate
Broke all promises and left me crying
Shocked as I was but had to accept our fate
How you broke my trust for me still baffling

You deserved to be punished, had there been justice
In any shape or form you were not blameless
So off to the traitor’s gate as the people cheered
And when you’re gone, I hope all pain disappeared*
