Trust


Trust is earned
But once violated
It’s difficult to regain

When do you trust?
Who do you trust?

You trust with your mind
You trust with your heart
You trust with honor
You trust with pride
You trust with expectations
But is putting trust in someone worth it?

Tell me, is it?

I’ve tried to trust
But ended up with betrayal
And cannot allow it to occur again

I opened my mind
Opened my heart
But only received
A shattered heart
Now I know not to trust so easily

    I agree! ! ! I trusted too. I said I love you. I ended a dream and...I love you, too.
    Now, I the fool. I hesitated and felt unsure; so scared that love could be real, not a trap, not a ploy, not a game.
    When I said I love you, I be that fool, because for you it was not real, it was a trap, a ploy, a game?
    So stupid am I. So exposed.
    I put my trust in someone and got crushed. (Report) Reply
