An Issue Of Trust Poem by Noemi Lee

An Issue Of Trust

Rating: 4.3


I do not allow
people
into my heart.

I do not trust them
to not
tear it all apart.

I do not trust
people
not to hurt or betray
me.

And so I protect
my heart
by locking the gate
and hiding the key.

In all of this mistrust
I can clearly see
That one I truly do not trust
is me.

And that's how the story usually goes. Brilliant slow build to the epic revelation! Enjoyed the read.
