trust

trust

A Poem by dovetailer
"

alone together...no armor...no restraints

"

…trust…

 

unbarred the door ~ unzipped thick hide…

you’ve trusted me ~ asked me inside

you sized me up ~ my words you’ve heard

so hard to trust ~ I know…absurd

 

the past is past ~ it fades away

its memories ~ are here to stay

you’ve let me in ~ I’m honor-bound

that you would have ~ me hang around

 

there is a beat ~ that resonates

a tie that binds ~ that consecrates

“be still…my heart ~ he will not harm

as others have ~ his smile will warm…”

 

“your hob-nailed boots ~ leave by the door…

you will not need ~ them anymore…”

“my heart is scarred ~ it’s been a mess

don’t touch the walls ~ the paint is fresh…”

 

“take what you will ~ this body’s used

bones have been broken ~ love refused…”

“love can be cruel ~  “hate” I should say…

I have survived ~ I thrive today…”

 

I  look at you ~ my soul is moved

I’m in your heart ~ your trust is proved

“I will not harm ~ dare raise a hand

give cause for tears ~  on shifting sand…”

 

“I’ll be your friend ~ you will rely…

our souls will blend ~ I won’t deny…”

with footfalls soft ~ and gentle touch

I’ll hold your heart ~ I’ll love you much…

 

no one would blame ~ you’re hiding here

eschewing world ~ and all men fear

I will not chafe ~ will not subdue

I will not harm ~ I will imbue

 

I’ll prop you up ~  if you should fall

absorb your tears ~ I’ll dry them all

sit at your feet ~ your silence hear

the antidote ~ to all you fear…

 

this choice you’ve made ~ you’ll never rue

of making me ~ a part of you

I’ve watched you daily ~ from afar

read all your words ~ for there you are

 

not in the words ~ but in between

on linen white ~ your soul is seen…

so here I am ~ you close the door

no need to fear ~ not anymore…
