who I am

you came to me,
confided in me,
you were suffering from ignorance,
an ailment I had the cure for,
I withheld it for people
who don't really care about me or you,
only about self-preservation,
over someone who has been
with me throughout my life

at the time, I convinced myself
I was doing the right thing,
as I looked directly into your eyes and lied,
I think we can all agree at this point,
what had happened was inconsequential
compared to steps taken keeping it from you,
I will always regret it,
no matter what fantasy I make up about myself,
the truth will always be-
I am a betrayer
