Trust


Trust, earned or lost
Do you have it from the beginning
Do you earn it
Does it take long
I think trust in earned and lost
It must never be questioned
For questioning trust is questioning your friend
If you have to question your friend did you ever really trust them to begin with
If trust is lost, will you ever get it back
Will you ever be close to that person again
Will you ever hear their secrets
How will it ever be the same
They might not ever fully trust you
I know how this feels
I have lost people’s trust many a time before
Why on earth don’t they trust me
I wish they did but I understand

    *clapping* darling, Trust is a very important part in relationships. I've been on both sides, but mostly the side where my trust is lost. The pain is unbearable sometimes. You hit me right here *taps heart* loved it, my dear, keep writing.

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
