I learn trust from you

 

Truth is action
Say one thing and do another
Is that right?

 

Your lecturing words
fall upon closed ears
or is it my heart that was closed?

I should listen to you
more than I do
but I can't believe
in what you were saying to me
I am too inexperienced to know the difference yet.

 

I learn trust from you

 

I watch for you
Listen for you footsteps in the dark
and pray you will not
come for me
in the dark of the night

 

I learn trust from you

 

Did you know that I am looking
for your love
and affection
but not like that?
I just want you lo love me


Fear is not love

 

The day will break
you will be sorry,
or at least say so
I will want to believe you

I want to see the good in you

the positive things

I will want to trust you


but I can't

and I remember

all the things you tell me

to forget


and then the
circle will
start
again.

 

Your lecturing words
fall upon closed ears
or is it my heart that was closed?

I should listen to you
more than I do
but I can't believe
in what you were saying to me
I am too inexperienced to know the difference yet.

 

I learn about trust from you
but you
I cannot trust

I have years in my eyes. Beautiful expecially after our talk this morning.

A powerful poem with a hidden story. Life is a twisted road to learn the right and wrong things. This poem told a story of trust and hurt. A powerful poem. Thank you.

Another good read!

What I read, I have no mind to imagine with, only the heart can barely understand. How I would be lying if I wrote "I understand". This is beyond appraisal, my friend.

Hello M' Lady,

A great write, and I absolutely agree that we need to prevent child abuse. It's a tragedy each and everytime a child suffers needlessly. If only I could get thrills from killing those who deserve their fates, but I try to toss one in here and there.

Regards,

Matthew

the last lines really hit me
its so conflicting when we are born into a family
that has no idea of spreading trust and respect

Been there. Your poem captures exactly how it is.

Excellence, again.
