Trust is to love, what the sun is to a flower and just as the sun nourishes the flower, so trust nurishes love.

Without trust, love withers and dies.

This poem was simply written but has a wealth of meaning. Trust is a foundation for so many things.. it keeps things such as friendships, working relationships, and personal relationships alive. Without the ability to trust one another, there really is nothing at all. What could have grown into something beautiful just stagnates and dies... without a chance to grow to its full potential.

A lovely write..
Thank you for sharing your thoughts and talent. :p

I like it IMOGEAN, love is about the lack of protection. You cannot open your heart to someone and try to protect it at the same time. This is where trust comes in. Without trust, we need walls around our heart to protect it. When we try to love with such walls, it always ends badly. As you say, without trust, love withers and dies.

Your words are true. Lies only can twist up a relationship. You said it all it so few words. A outstanding poem.

Totally relatable that true! One needs trust in all aspects of their existance! Not only in themselves, but others and those things that they work with every day. A sailor wouldn't be able to sail, unless they trusted their sense of the wind and waves.

A great and potent piece!

Powerful expression of this deep connection. Both must exist for love to be fully realized. Richly painted and well voiced. Thank you!

You sure nailed it this time, Sweetheart !

You could approach it from many angles; trust is the
cement that binds all of the conditions of love, when the
cement dries and evaporates, love falls apart.
Of course we all know that if love is to survive, a little
cement must be added from time to time.

As usual you have written an emotional appeal to the tender
and uninitiated and you have done it very well, you always write

Excellent writing.

The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, serenely, divinely aware... And this is why I write: AWARENESS... It is not in the moment that I tasted the delicacies of life .. more..
