Trust you….Do?

Trust.
The ability to believe
to understand
that the words spoken
are the ones you mean.
I do not trust.
Too many men
made promises
built sand castles
promised the world
only to stand watch
as the darkening current
swept me away.
Trust.
Given to none
for they do not care.
I desire to give to you
my trust……..
yet…..
I have no faith
I have no trust
I have stood here alone
for so very very long.
You present your hand
a gentle smile
encouraging me to cross.
Leap the brook
toes dance on rocks
you pull me into your arms.
I cradle close
hearing your heart
feeling your arms
wrapped around me….
Trust.
I have given it to you
please
do not make me undone.

  1. Such a beautiful poem Jay-lyn 🙂

    I find some men are reluctant to make any promises – I think they know they might break any sense of trust, so they seem to want to avoid making pledges they may not keep.

    I kind of appreciate them not playing games with me, but it’s worrying that they don’t have “stickability”, tenacity and determination to make things work. They seem kind of feeble as regards reliability.
