Overly Suspicious

Overly suspicious?

 

I live alone because I must.

I have forgotten how to trust.

I’ve been betrayed too frequently

By people who were close to me.

I think perhaps I was naïve

And far too ready to believe

The tales my so called friends told me.

I did not doubt their honesty.

I know now that I should have done.

So now I don’t trust anyone.

Save members of my family

 and even those not completely.

I live alone because I must

I have forgotten how to trust.

Enjoyed this. You have a knack for sure for rhyming your poems and making it flow like a symphony.
