More than you can handle...

Russian Roulette

by Judvan2

I stand with gun to mouth
Round and round it goes
Where it stops

I won't remember
What you did to me
Prayers never answered

Faith gone up in smoke
Hope never showed up
To pull me through

I'm done with trying
Waiting for a better day
Light at end of a tunnel

God never gives you
More than you can handle
The saying goes

I can't handle this
The pain too great
No comfort sent my way

The perfect betrayal
Brings me to the perfect solution
Betray the betrayer

Dead by my own hand
No salvation from the god
Who gave me more than I can handle

Betrayal writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
Write a poem in any form or style with Betrayal as the central theme.

"God won't give you more than you can handle," is a saying I hear often. Many people can't handle the pain in life so they commit suicide. The church says you can't go to heaven if you commit suicide. What greater betrayal than to have no relief of pain, and to know if you finally end your pain you will be punished in hell?
