The Gift

 

They say a man can be judged by those he keeps as friends. 

 

Some time during the last months, I’ve forgotten that. 

 

I’ve allowed my mind to be infected by that insidious malady called doubt.

 

I’ve allowed myself to be corrupted by misguided emotion for a woman who did not care so much about me, as about her own twisted goals. 

 

I was a fool.

 

I hurt those I should have been most loyal to. 

 

And now it comes to this. 

 

The face I see on the other side of the sealed door isn’t hers.  I only hope that my friends forgive my mistake. 

 

They say the greatest gift a man can give is to sacrifice his life to save those he loves…
