Trust - Poem by Rebecca Pepper

Trust, a delicate matter of me and you
A relationship that is so fresh, brand new
That we barely know the others birthday
But you said it didn't matter what others say

So I trust you to a point, I think, but not completely
I still need that little bit of freedom, space to flee
And right there is the problem that we now face
Because neither of us seem to be able to keep this pace

It's just that you go so fast and I can't help but feel fear
That once this phase is over, this won't last a year
I feel pathetic that I wish for a way out of this box
And I know Im paranoid when I feel like a hunted fox

Don't tell me that this is enough for you because I know
That even though I am scared your impatience shows
It's not that I'm new to this because that isn't true
It's just that before it wasn't caring but this is you

I can't help but feel that I am holding you back
Maybe that it's my fault, that there is something I lack
Yes there is a problem with confidence but maybe more
I fear you because you are an opportunity, an open door

Can I let my disturbing past be buried in butterfly kisses?
Or is this too much to hope for, no matter the number of wishes
A little problem of trust, nothing more nothing less
But I do love you that's something I must confess
